Project Description:

The aim of the course was to support community volunteers in their efforts to enhance their local waters. The training course introduced participants to an introductory level of aquatic science, this is an essential starting point so that participants could proceed with confidence to develop plans to protect and enhance their local water bodies, such as streams, rivers, and lakes.


The training course was very valuable and an overall a success in that it delivered what it set out to achieve and there are 6 robust plans in place in community groups who will be able to leverage funding to deliver their actions.  The feedback from participants was mainly positive with many gaining knowledge and skills in caring for water.
