During August we are going to be monitoring some of the native white-clawed crayfish in the Eden catchment. We will be carrying out surveys to check that they are in good health and that they are breeding as they should.
No experience is necessary as training will be given on the day. 

There are a number of dates to choose from (see top of page). If you are interested and none of these dates fit contact Paul, as there is some flexibility.

Please note:

  • Surveys need dry conditions and reasonably low water, so bear in mind they are at the mercy of the weather.
  • This activity suits small groups of 1 - 3 people, so be sure to book your space as early as possible to have the best chance of the date being available.
