ObstacEELS Training with ARK

6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

This is the first training workshop for volunteers with our project partner Action for the River Kennet (ARK). ARK are looking for keen volunteers to be trained to become part of their Eel Force! The Eel Force volunteers will use a newly developed citizen science eel barrier walkover surveying method (ObstacEELS) and work as small teams to log data .

The training is a two step process, with online training and ‘in the field’ training. This event is step one.

If you would would like to volunteer to be part of a team of volunteers that walk specified stretches of the Kennet and/or Pang in organised groups on specific dates this year please do email mia@riverkennet.org for more details/to book your place.

This project is funded by the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The fund is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England and the Environment Agency.
