River Rom/Beam Outfall Safari


PLEASE HELP SURVEY OUTFALLS ON THE RIVERS ROM/BEAM

Pollution can find its way into urban rivers via surface water outfalls (drains) as a result of misconnected plumbing.

ZSL and the Land of the Fanns are looking for volunteers to help conduct Outfall Safari surveys along the Rivers Rom and Beam. This involves surveying stretches of the river to map and record the impact of outfalls with the help of a mobile app.
The surveys will take place during: April 2019

As a volunteer, you can choose which stretch of river to survey and conduct the survey at a time that is convenient to you, within the survey period of April 2019. Where possible the survey will be conducted from the footpath by the side of the river but, in parts, it may be necessary to walk in the river where it is safe to do so. All training and equipment will be provided.

Briefing sessions for volunteers will take place at the:
MILLENNIUM VISITOR CENTRE, EASTBROOKEND COUNTRY PARK
10:00 – 12:00 on Wednesday 20 March 2019

For more information contact phoebe.shawstewart@zsl.org
Please register your interest to help at: RomBeamOutfalls.eventbrite.co.uk

Once registered more information will be sent to you about how to join the briefing session and download the app.
