FIN - Freshwater Invertebrate Network

Helping community groups take care of their streams



FIN helps community groups take care of their streams

The project aims to establish a biological monitoring programme, run by local people on a voluntary basis, to continually assess the health of water bodies in targeted areas of the Black Country and Birmingham.

A network of freshwater recording champions are provided with the skills and confidence to enable them to record and monitor the water bodies in their local area.

Together we are working to enhance the quality of water habitats in public open spaces, for the benefit of both for people and wildlife.

This initiative is a collaboration with the Environment Agency and the local community.
