LeaF Festival : Getting Hands on – Citizen Science and Turtles Workshop

About the Workshop
Come and see citizen science in action and find out what we need to do to look after our river. Sue Lennox will share the results of the Bellingen Riverwatch program, which involved Bellingen schools and the Bellingen Community in monitoring river health on a monthly basis. Hear about the partnership between OzGREEN and the NSW Govt Saving Our Species program, in collaboration with Bellingen Shire Council and multiple partners who were involved in the Turtle rescue. Brought to you by OzGREEN.
