Volunteers Newsletter 30th May
I hope you all had a fantastic bank holiday weekend! I just wanted to remind you of tasks this week. Also… if you haven’t done so already please can you let me know if you will be coming on the geomorphology course on Friday at Trees Please in Corbridge. It is also last chance to let me know if you would like to be a riverfly monitor for us, we have a course arranged on Monday 26th June and I have a space or two available. If you would like to do this can you confirm with me as soon as possible, just so I know how many kits to order etc
Thursday 1st June 1pm- 4pm. Hebburn Riverside Park / Friars Goose- Joint litter pick with Akzonobel staff. I will be leaving the TRT office at around 12.15pm for this or email for directions to the meeting point.
Friday 2nd June- 10am-3pm- Trees Please, Corbridge- Geomorphology training day with professor Malcolm Newson. A great opportunity to learn from Malcolm ans ask questions! Part of the day will be inside and the afternoon will be spent outdoors weather permitting.
Let me know if you can make either of the above. Thank you everyone for your hard work as always, we had a fab day at Jesmond Dene last week, looking forward to seeing you all this week.
A final note….if anybody has a Riverfly monitoring kit (net, tray etc) that they no longer use (and don’t intend on using) please could you let me know and I will come and collect it. That way it can be used by other monitors, they cost over a hundred pounds each and we would love them back so that we can save some pennies next time!.
Thanks everyone, see you soon!
