A BARRHEAD primary is taking part in a ground-breaking “school citizen science project” ahead of Glasgow hosting the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November.

The education programme aims to inspire kids about the success story of wild salmon in the River Clyde and has been developed by conservation organisations, including the Clyde River Foundation (CRF), Missing Salmon Alliance (MSA) and US initiative, Salmon School, in collaboration with the Smithsonian Museum.

During the project, pupils will visit their local river to find out more about the story of the Clyde and its tributaries, wild salmon, their lifecycle and the factors affecting them, as well as surveying the habitat and fish populations.
