Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All


River Picture For Freshwater Page And Overview Page

All our freshwater sampling sites are within walking distance of the Centre, which is in the Conwy Valley and Snowdonia National Park. We use both the stream flowing through the Centre grounds and the River Conwy next to the Centre (depending on rainfall and the height of river). Here you will find a number resources to support fieldtrips to FSC Rhyd y creuau, including a Google Earth tour showing some of our main biology field site locations. There is also a two minute video introducing the site, a copy of the student booklet we use during the day and background information.

If there is something you think would be useful here or you have a question not answered by these resources please give us an e-mail at [email protected]
