Citizen Science Sampling

Be a scientist for a day!

We would like for you to register to take samples from up to three river or stream locations. We are focussing on areas from three important river catchments from across England - the Thames, Humber and Severn river catchment areas. If you access rivers or streams in one of these areas then we would appreciate you registering for our citizen science sampling.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SAMPLING REQUESTS WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM 16th MAY 2022. 

Please ensure you have read the Participant Information Leaflet and Health and Safety guidance before registering for a sampling kit. You need to be 18 years old or above to register. You will be sent a sampling kit, detailed instructions (including key health and safety information) and paid and addressed packaging to return the samples. When you take your samples there is a sheet with some information to fill in about the river/ stream where you sample. Please return this with your water samples. If you would like to enter this information online, please use this form.
