Event Information


Workshop for local environmental information about the River Yealm and Estuary 9.30-12

Data accessibility workshop for local environmental information about the River Yealm and Estuary

Do you have an interest in the Yealm?

Do you want to know more about the different parts of the river catchment from its source on Dartmoor to the mouth of the estuary?

There is masses of information on topics such as land use, biodiversity and water quality but it is not easily available.  This project, run by the University of Plymouth in partnership with the Yealm Estuary to Moor (YEM) group, aims to work with you to develop a user-friendly interactive maps and data sets covering the Yealm catchment.  It is aimed at being helpful, useful and interesting for you to use and explore.

You are invited to join us for a workshop to find out more about the project and to tell us what sort of information about the river Yealm and its estuary would be useful to you. For example, we can support you to produce maps to help decide where the community could tackle invasive species or help wildlife, to help in making a community grant application, or to encourage your curiosity!

We are running two workshops so please select the most convenient time and venue for you:

Tuesday 27th June from 18:00 to 20:30 in the Westward Inn, Lee Mill or 

Thursday the 29th June 9.30am – 12 noon in Yealmpton Community Room. 

Light refreshments will be provided.
