After spells as River Shuttle Co-ordinator and then general Education Officer, Bexleyheath resident Joanne is back on the staff of the Thames21 waterways charity again, this time delivering training and education for the Thames River Watch project.
Joanne left a great legacy from her earlier role in the shape of the Friends of the Shuttle group, which has recently expanded operations to fill the void in environmental action at Danson Park, and serves on its committee.
She will be running a water quality monitoring training event at Erith Yacht club in October. Details as follows:
Thames River Watch – Water Quality Monitoring Training at Erith Yacht club. October 17th.
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.
This day-long training session will provide non-experts with the knowledge and tools to become a Thames River Watch surveyor.
The session will include:
An introduction to Thames River Watch
The story of London’s River
The tidal foreshore environment
How to undertake water quality tests
How to report your findings
The session involves indoor learning and a practical session on the foreshore.
Please note: you must register with the training programme before you can book onto this event: http://www.thames21.org.uk/thames21-training-registration/
