Waterwatch North East is holding a National Waterbug Blitz!
The National Waterbug Blitz invites citizen scientists to work with scientists and look at water quality & river health on a local and national scale!
A Training Session is being offered in Bright for volunteers and professionals alike to learn how to collect & identify waterbugs and use the Waterbug App. Then you’ll have all the skills you need to do your own Waterbug Blitz at your local creek or river.
On the day, please bring:
– A folding chair
– Lunch & water/drinks for the day for yourself (snacks provided)
– Hat, sunscreen, insect repellent – you will be working outdoors!!!
– Gumboots or waders
– Your smart phone with The Waterbug App downloaded & signed in – free on Google Play or iTunes App Store
