We have been conducting RiverLAB sessions with schools since 2013. This has been an invaluable way to work with children of all ages to get them excited about nature and river habitats.
These sessions not only support their scientific skills, but also their artistic side. These are varied from learning about 'minibeasts', salmon, elver eels, invasive species and so much more.
RiverLABs have been designed to educate and nurture children’s’ interest in their local river, through a combination of scientific investigation and creative expression.
RiverLABs support children in their identification skills as well as connecting with being outside in nature. They learn about invertebrates, habitats, life cycles and much more.
Is your school interested in getting involved in RiverLABs? Why not contact our Education Officer:

“Plenty of information – the meeting before the day was excellent… many children have never been to their local river site before… everything was amazing”
