River Monitoring

November 27th

Following on from the report about the river flowing through the park we recently had a visit from the team monitoring the health of the river. On an approximately monthly basis a sample is taken from the river and checked for wildlife. Any fish are thrown back (and some were which speaks volumes for the cleanliness of the water) and the remaining wildlife is assessed, counted and catalogued.

The project is sponsored by the Environment Agency and carried out by local volunteers who have been doing the monitoring for some time now and are very pleased with the quality of the river and its contents. Why not come and see it for yourself by visiting Willow Valley. Try out the new online booking system:
