  1. Default New website to help get kids interested in our rivers

    Hi - I thought I'd share a link to a website that I've put together to help promote rivers and everything that lives in them to kids (and their teachers!). It is basically an invertebrate version of the existing and excellent "Trout/Salmon in the classroom" projects. Here, though, the kit only costs a very few dollars - so price shouldn't exclude any schools that want to try it out.

    Although it has been developed for British mayflies, the setup can easily be used for all common mayfly families. All resources/instructions and support contact details (including mine) are featured on the site and there is no registration fee or any spam associated with downloading them. All we ask is that when you have good stories/photos from your local Mayfly in the Classroom projects that you share them with us via email on pgaskell@wildtrout.org

    Here is the link to the website: www.mayflyintheclassroom.org - Home

    All the best

    Paul this is a really cool project, good luck with it. It looks like this is something that could be easily introduced into classrooms and would be a lot of fun for kids-- as well as giving them a great appreciation for the incredible life in their neighborhood streams.

    Good luck!
