Citizens in Action on the River Yealm

The Yealm Estuary to Moor Project (YEM) is coordinating volunteers on behalf of the Westcountry Rivers Trust (WRT) Citizen Science Investigation (CSI), studying long term river health on the River Yealm. This group of volunteers, known as the “Yealm Dippers”, has been trained and supported by WRT, with added support from the Parish Councils of Wembury, Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo, Yealmpton, Brixton and Sparkwell, plus one anonymous donor, all coordinated through the River Yealm Water Quality Group. 

A report describing this programme and our findings from the first full year is available here.
