The year is never usually as rigid as this schedule seems, we just seem to be getting more orgnised as the years go by. We often arrange impromptu walks, talks, events, cleanups, etc, so please keep an eye on our Facebook or Twitter pages, or on here.

We are also looking for new audiences for our presentation to help people understand the origins of CATCH, what we do, how we do it, and maybe a small chuckle here and there….Please contact us via social media, or on here, or by phone.

Throughout the year we conduct kick sampling on a monthly basis (dates to be confirmed each month). This is a method of continually assessing the river condition, and we welcome public participation and attendance. We will publish these in advance for anyone who wants to watch a kick sample in action.
