River Detectives

River Detectives is an exciting education initiative of Catchment Management Authorities inspiring teachers and students to understand, appreciate and care for their local waterway through engaging, cross-curricular, citizen-science activities. River Detectives is a free, flexible and fun way to connect young people to nature through monthly water quality testing.  Students learn how water, land, plants, animals, people and communities are all integrally linked and schools are provided with equipment, training and teaching resources. Schools and youth community groups can apply to participate in the River Detectives program from the website link below but spaces are limited.  An ‘Apply Now’ button will be visible when applications are open for the next school year.
