Do you love walking along your local river? Would you like to help protect the health and biodiversity of freshwater habitats?
 
In partnership with Wessex Water, Somerset Wildlife Trust are piloting a new volunteer scheme to help monitor the health of our rivers. We are particularly keen to hear from people living within the wider Brue catchment.

Ideally, we are looking for committed local people who already walk along water ways as part of their regular routine. Please be aware that you must be happy to work alone and a reasonable internet connection and a willingness to engage with online platforms is essential for this role as all training and reporting takes place remotely. 

This is an opportunity to have a real impact in your local community and environment, whilst learning more about freshwater ecology and environmental health.
