I River Volunteer Sessions. April 16 and 17, 2010

The sessions

The Segura Water Commissioner, by means of these sessions, wishes to highlight the importance of public participation in the National River Restoration Strategy. Among the programs that comprise this strategy, the River Volunteer Program is one of the tools available to offer the public an opportunity to actively participate in the improvement of our natural areas.

This program was started in 2007 by four organizations in the Segura basin, a number that has been increasing year after year, reaching the ten associations currently working in various rivers and basin environments. A number of activities are developed in this program, of which we can highlight bank restoration, trash and rubble collection, animal and plant inventories, watercourse environmental quality control, path signalling, species tracking such as toothcarp, dragonfly, pond turtle, otter, etc., as well as publishing different information materials and offering talks in educational centers.
