Get to know your rivers and streams!

The presence/absence and abundance of certain freshwater invertebrates (often called macroinvertebrates) the aquatic larval stage of various insects - can tell a story of a water body’s health. A typical sampling method for streams and rivers is called kick sampling and involves disturbing the material on the bed of the river or stream and collecting the freed organisms in a net. The sample is then rinsed out of the net into a tray full of water for sorting and identification. Monitoring of this kind provides a snap-shot in time and can give an indication of the current health of the waterway.

We will bring hand nets, trays and expert knowledge about the invertebrates you will find. We hope to find evidence of:

  • Caddisfly (Trichoptera)
  • Mayfly (Ephemeroptera) larvae,
  • Dragonfly and damselfly nymphs (Odonata)
  • Planaria (Tricladida)

CARE are a Community Benefit Society determined to make a positive environmental impact for our local community in North-East Pembrokeshire. 

After 13 years hard work we've successfully put up a 700kW wind turbine to generate clean energy. We are now working on developing a share offer to invite people to invest and become members of CARE, which will help grow a fund for the benefit of the local community. We are also working hard to deliver our other community projects, focusing on landscape restoration, creating an eco-friendly space for arts in the community, and offering energy efficiency advice.

Over the years we've worked with other communities, businesses and individuals across North Pembrokeshire; sharing what we have learned along the way, to help build resilience to the changing economy and the changing environment, through community action and enterprise.
