Karlstad University students came, watched and learned

Talking rivers

About 20 students from Karlstads Universitet visited us at Fyledalen, to learn about the project, the mussels and the restoration in the Valley…

Den första riktigt varma sommardagen i maj (2014-05-22) med gassande sol kom ett gäng studenter från Karlstad universitet på besök till Fyledalen. Under ledning av universitetslektor Raimo Neergaard var de på en rundresa i södra Sverige, för att titta på olika vattenprojekt och lära sig mer om restaurering.

Jag berättade om bakgrunden till musselarbetet i Skåne, om Fyleån och om UC4Life-projektet samt guidade dem runt en del av den återmeandrade sträckan. Trots värmen var studenterna pigga och alerta samt både frågvisa och vetgiriga. De fick förhoppningsvis nya intryck att ta med sig på sin vidare färd i landet och i livet.



Fyleån Creek opening ceremony – a success

The European Parliament Member, Isabella Lövin, the president of the European Environmental Bureau, Mikael Karlsson, the Landowners, and the Project Manager, including the County Governor Margareta Pålsson gave short and interesting talks about the importance of water management and river restoration (and more…) as part of the ceremony.

About one hundred invited guests came to join us during the event which was ended by a mussel show, performed by 52 school kids, aged six and seven. Our scientists, the landowners and the County Governor handed out mussel, trees and fish for the kids to introduce into the restored part of Fyleån Creek. A symbolic action telling us that if we all collaborate, nothing is impossible… It was awesome!

The magic continues

The magic continues

 Approximately 150 persons visited us and became part of the Magic Unio crassus show at Fyleån Creek. Our project gave its best together with the Water council, the Swedish angling society and Christenehof Ecoparc.

The kids waded in the Creek and became muddy and wet – such fun! Mussels and fish were at display in aquariums and visitors were guided along the Creek.

Thanks to you all, helping us with organizing and carry out the show, which was magic indeed!
