Tracks and Traces: Finding hidden wildlife of the Dungog Common

dragon_at_Dungog_CommonDuring this citizen science event we aim to identify and record the presence of a range of species of animals and plants found on the Dungog Common – a 260 ha reserve at the edge of Dungog – on March 4, 2018 from 10:00 am – 1:45 pm. Teams of up to ten participants will be led by an ecologist who will provide advice to participants on species identification using direct observation and indirect approaches while learning about techniques involved in biological surveys.

This is a terrific opportunity to explore an exceptional natural resource on Dungog’s doorstep under the guidance of a biologist and in the company of like-minded curious amateur naturalists in an informal atmosphere.

It is a collaborative event organised by the Dungog Common Recreation Reserve Trust, Dungog Common Landcare group and the Paterson Allyn Williams Science Hub. It is funded by a grant from the NSW Government Local Land Services.

 

All are welcome, registration and other details can be found here.
