Plastic pollution monitoring training – Thames River Watch
March 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Help Thames21 establish what litter is in the Thames and how it gets there by becoming a citizen scientist! As a Thames River Watch volunteer, you will spend just a couple of hours each month to help us build a better picture of the health of the tidal Thames. In the process you will join a local group of volunteers and get out into nature on your doorstep.
This day-long training session will provide non-experts with the knowledge and tools to become a Thames River Watch surveyor. Click here to find out more about the Thames River Watch project.
The session will include:
- An introduction to Thames River Watch
- The story of London’s River
- The tidal foreshore environment
- How to undertake a litter survey of the Thames foreshore
- How to report your findings
The session involves indoor learning and a practical session on the foreshore.
