Thank you to everyone who came to our 2016 Riverfly Partnership conference this Saturday. We had a great day and we hope that those who came along did too!A big thanks is also due to our fantastic speakers as well as everyone who generously donated to our ongoing Riverfly work. We had talks from the Riverfly Partnership, Wessex Water, the Environment Agency, Severn Rivers Trust, The Rivers Trust and Professor Mark Everard.  The day was extremely valuable for our future partnership working and we look forward to working with those who we spoke to in order to direct important citizen science monitoring into the future.The afternoon also provided us with some great questions and discussions in our Q&A session and river walk.

Thanks again to all involved and we look forward to the next one!

For those new to Riverfly monitoring, this fascinating world has been captured in a beautifully presented document by Dr Ueli Zellweger of the Anglers’ Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (ARMI).
