Ambleside to take part in nationwide air pollution survey
10:11am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in News
AMBLESIDE is taking part in the nationwide air pollution survey on Saturday (November 2).
Volunteers recruited by local green campaigners Windermere Reflections will join groups throughout the country in identifying lichens growing on trees to find out what they indicate about air quality. Results will be recorded on a national database.
The survey will be led by WR education officer Claire Backhouse and volunteers are asked to contact her to book a place.
The survey will start from the WR offices at Low Nook on the University of Cumbria campus at 10.30am.
No prior knowledge or experience is required.
“We would expect our part of this survey to show that Lake District air is pretty clean,” said Windermere Reflections programme manager Liz Davey.
“This is a great opportunity to learn about the effects air pollution can have on the plants around us and hopefully to count our blessings as we enjoy the benefits of living, or visiting, such a great area.”
Contact Claire to book a place on 079669 36008 or email@example.com.
