Over 2,000 children across the Scottish Borders attended the Border Union Agricultural Society Schools Countryside Day in Kelso and the RHET Scottish Borders Countryside Education Days at the Hirsel Estate. Susie and Ben from the Tweed Foundation engaged with students teaching them about the river's invertebrates and biology, emphasising the economic impact of Atlantic Salmon to the borders and the challenges these fish face.

The Glendale Agricultural Society‚Äôs Countryside day attracted over 1600 children from schools across North Northumberland. Children enjoyed a hands on experience with fresh water invertebrates, capturing and classifying bugs, and understanding their importance.
