Monitoring and Research

By monitoring the watercourses of the Wyre Catchment we can identify areas of river, stream or brook that we would like to improve. 


Through research we can use methods of river restoration that are tried and tested, we can also devise new methods of river restoration where necessary . Monitoring also allows us to assess the success of the projects that we deliver, this enables us to quantify the improvements that we have made to riparian habitats and make changes to future projects if they are required. This monitoring takes many forms but is most commonly achieved through river corridor surveys, kick sampling and fixed point photography.
