About this event
Love the Dart? Bring your wellies and learn how to monitor the health of this local landmark with the Westcountry River Trust by becoming a citizen scientist.
As part of the River Dart Charter for Dartington project, agreeing a shared vision for the stewardship of river at Dartington, here’s an opportunity to learn a little more about monitoring the health of our water.
The Westcountry Rivers Trust will be running several Citizen Science Investigations workshops looking at recording wildlife, water quality and signs of pollution. It’s a fun way to contribute to a growing set of data about the Dart, which we can use to target our work and make real improvements to the river.
We’ll be meeting at The Green Table Cafe at 9:45am before heading down to the waters edge.
Families are welcome, although we’re suggesting ages 6+ for children.
Please dress appropriately to the weather and for working outdoors.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
