Citizen Science Water Sampling


Westcountry Rivers Trust CSI aims are:

  • To educate and engage people with the water environment.

  • To produce data that can be used to target work and identify degrading water bodies.

  • To spot pollution events which can be dealt with as quickly as possible.

  • To create a network of catchment communities that are invested in their local environment

Creek water sampling on the third Sunday of every month!

We will be river sampling regularly for the Westcountry Rivers Trust  Citizen Science (CSI) data set.

Meet at 10am by the Creek notice board.  This will take approx 1 hour.

We will also identify species wherever possible and upload those to the ORKS app. 

The ORKS app is a mobile application which enables you to record wildlife sightings in Cornwall and Scilly.

ORKS website and App are developed and supported by ERCCIS, Environmental Records Centre for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
