Making the Most of Moorlands - Update

Freshwater Sampling - Langholm Academy S1

Spent the morning with a very enthusiastic group of S1's from Langholm Academy. The freshwater sampling session was very successful in that much freshwater was sampled and now the group have a much better insight of how it feels to be a Stonefly nymph! As well as having lots of fun. we discussed how certain species can indicate the health of a river system and covered sampling techniques and an empathetic approach to handling living creatures. The whole group were a pleasure to work with and I'm already looking forward to the next one! - Rick
