Riverfly for Schools is a hands-on environmental project where children engage with their local environment by monitoring water quality and learning about river habitats and the pressures they face.
Mayfly in the Classroom is a hands on environmental project that allows young people to engage with river habitat processes by involving them in the life cycle of one of our key river species.
Funding is secured to provide primary schools within the Wear catchment area the opportunity to access the educational programme delivered by Wear Rivers Trust Educational Officer Lucy Lovett. The funding enables schools to access the programme at a supplemented fee making the programme more accesible to all.
The site you choose to visit will depend on your learning outcomes and on what activities you would like the children to do. Wew are happy to work with you to determine the best site for your needs. Where possible we will help you use your local river as an outdoor classroom and we would also be happy to show you sites where we have done habitat improvement works and where we have installed fish passes.
