Miller Argent helps local schools celebrate Biodiversity Week

Miller Argent has sponsored a number of local schools to take part in a workshop as part of their celebration of Wales Biodiversity Week, which took place between 7th and 15th June and is run by the Wales Biodiversity Partnership, which aims to celebrate the amazing wildlife diversity in Wales.

The company, which regularly supports local green and education initiatives, sponsored a ‘You and Your River’ workshop run by the South East Wales Rivers Trust (SEWRT).

Four local schools including Edwardsville Primary School, Ysgol y Graig Primary School, Ynysowen Primary School and Pant Primary School attended the workshops in which water collected from the River Taff was analysed by the children.

The pupils undertook a number of activities in which they identified the plants, bugs and animals present in the water and how this can demonstrate the water quality.
