Form 9-10:30 am we will conduct our monthly Streamwatch sampling.
Streamwatch is a citizen science water quality monitoring program that empowers community groups to monitor and protect the health of local waterways.
Our team measures water temperature, dissolved oxygen, phosphorous, conductivity, turbidity and pH on a monthly basis
The water is sampled from Mulgoa Creek which flows through Wallaroo
After the morning tea break I will take you for a walk along our newly established ClimateWatch trail. We will record species that are likely to react with changes in their phenology. Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and interannual variations in climate. Examples include bird nesting, insect hatching, plant flowering and fruit ripening. Many studies have already provided insight into the relationship between climate variables, such as temperature and rainfall, to the timing of these phenophases. Come and join us to become a citizen scientist yourself. No prior experience needed.
