Volunteer training

Volunteer training

Anstruther Improvements Association (AIA) worked with Forth Rivers Trust (FRT) to train volunteers in water quality monitoring techniques and to set up a tailored, community-led monitoring programme for the Dreel Burn. 

The AIA also organised training in the Riverfly Partnership’s national Anglers’ Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (ARMI), supported by FRT to coordinate invertebrate monitoring.

Thanks to the Dreel Burn Investment Readiness Partnership, the AIA is now working with the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and the James Hutton Institute, exploring additional opportunities for community science activity, such as soil monitoring.

If you would like to get involved in these or other volunteer activities on the Dreel Burn, please get in touch here.
