Crayfish Survey Training Event

Sites to be confirmed by the Eden Rivers Trust. If you would like to help survey for native crayfish then sign up for Eden Rivers Trust's training day in the Eden Valley in Cumbria. The rare and protected white-clawed crayfish is native to many of the rivers and becks in the Eden catchment. It is under threat of crayfish plague a wide spread and virulent disease caused by the fungus Aphanomyces astaci. Volunteering with Eden Rivers Trust as a crayfish surveyor offers a fantastic opportunity to see this protected species up close in its native habitat learn more about crayfish ecology and gain experience of survey techniques. Surveys will take place between July and September. Wear clothes appropriate for the weather conditions and bring waders if you have them a packed lunch and plenty of water to drink.
