Call for Citizen Scientists

Transforming the Trent Valley scheme is launching our ‘Big Washlands Watch’ project in 2020. This project aims to learn more about the number and types of species living in the Trent Valley area by encouraging local people to get involved in some citizen science activities. We would like to hear from people and groups within the Transforming the Trent Valley scheme area who want to learn more about the wildlife on their doorstep and would like to help us to record it.

If you are part of a school who would like a session about wildlife in your school grounds, or a volunteer group who would like a course on pollinators, or an individual who has a good knowledge of wildlife and would like to put it to good use by becoming a recorder, we’d love to hear from you! There are loads of ways to get involved in this project, and you’ll be helping us to monitor the health of wildlife and biodiversity within the Transforming the Trent Valley area.

Find out more about the ‘Big Washlands Watch’ project, or contact Nicola Lynes, Community Engagement Officer by email nicola.lynes@supportstaffordshire.org.uk or call 07837 127165.
