Learning about Rivers

Project Overview

This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The aim is to engage and educate in schools and communities about all things to do with rivers. We will engage with schools and wider communities along the Rivers Wharfe, Swale, Ure, Nidd and Ouse, on things to do with Rivers – from habitats and minibeasts, to how rivers work, flooding and natural flood measures.

From 2018 we have a new mobile classroom which will allow us to bring our displays out to you. The van will be fitted with:
• a Rivers Table – which shows how rivers work from source to sea
• Microscopes – which will allow us to show the minibeasts and riverflies that live in our watercourses
• Displays showing different aspects of rivers and their habitats.
