Climate change has underlined the importance of monitoring freshwater ecosystems. This course is designed to help professional surveyors and amateur naturalists increase their understanding of the large and diverse group of invertebrates that inhabit our rivers and ponds.

Illustrated talks and field excursions will demonstrate the latest practice in sampling methodology and preservation of specimens. Identification sessions will cater for both amateur and professional interests and needs. Please note this course starts at 14:00 on the 30 May.

Adrian Chalkley was a teacher for over 30 years and has been studying pond and river life for most of that time.

He has been a member of the Freshwater Biological Association for 25 years and the Suffolk County Recorder for freshwater invertebrates for over 20 years.
