The City of Gold Coast in collaboration with the Gold Coast Catchment Association is hosting the National Waterbug Blitz on 9 and 10 September 2018, and registrations are closing tomorrow.
What is the Waterbug Blitz?
The National Waterbug Blitz is Australia’s first nationwide waterway monitoring event. In Spring each year, Australians are encouraged to become ‘citizen scientists’ and investigate how healthy their local waterways and wetlands are, simply by exploring and identifying what waterbugs they contain.
Why the Waterbug Blitz operates on the premise that the wellbeing of our freshwater ecosystems is vitally important, and this project will help the Gold Coast Catchment Association look after them. Everyone can get involved to help put our waterways under the magnifying glass by collecting valuable data, and as a bonus it’s fun, good for you and good for the community!
There are two options available: an introductory course on Sunday 9 September and an advanced on on Monday 10. Both run at Laver Family Park in Mudgeeraba, and lunch is included.
