Pond Workshops at Rawcliffe Meadows

Pond Conservation are running a series of training events in North Yorkshire during 2013 to assist volunteers interested in helping with the PondNet project. PondNet is a volunteer survey that aims to collect information about trends in pond quality and pond species, including uncommon plants and animals. Over 80% of ponds in England and Wales are now in poor condition. With so little regular monitoring of ponds there is concern that declines in plant and animal groups will go undetected. Further information can be obtained from the Pond Conservation website: http://www.pondconservation.org.uk/Surveys/PondNet

These include events at Rawcliffe Meadows on Saturday 4th May (an introduction to aquatic invertebrate surveys) and Saturday 15th June (aquatic plant survey). Further details can be found at: http://www.pondconservation.org.uk/Surveys/PondNet/Training+Courses+2013
