Since it’s inception the Trust have been educating people about the importance of rivers and Ribble Life Together has enabled us to expand our programme to reach more young people than ever!
For the last ten years the Trust has been running the River in the Classroom scheme; initially we started with a small handful of schools but we’ve now expanded our reach across the whole catchment.
The River in the Classroom project is designed to teach children about rivers through fun, hands on experiences that have been tailored to the curriculum. By bringing the river into the classroom the children can see the world from a trout’s point of view, learn about river habitats, find out about the food chain and watch trout grow through it’s lifecycle from egg to fully grown trout when it will finally be released.
Now, thanks to the Ribble Life Together project we are expanding our education and training programmes so that we can reach more schools, and pupils than ever before!
By sparking children’s interest in rivers and engaging with them we can teach them about the creatures living in rivers, pollution prevention and the importance of the environment and taking care of it.
Our #riverwise schools have all taken part in our programme, take a look at our River Wise map to find out about their River Wise adventures!
