Call to join Bioblitz at reserve
Wagin Woody Landcare is calling for budding naturalists, would-be David Attenboroughs, future scientists and all those with a passion for flora and fauna to attend Bio-blitz in the Wingedyne Nature Reserve in Woodanilling Shire.
Bio-blitz is a great opportunity to learn from experts about our local environment and perform interesting activities, such as fauna trapping.
With the support of the State NRM Office, Wagin Woody Landcare engages a range of scientist and experienced amateurs to come along and guide participants in surveying a chosen field, which can include birds, insects, mammals, soils/flora and reptiles.
Camping facilities will include toilets and main meals will be catered — participants will need to bring their own camping equipment and snacks for the day.
This family-friendly event is a fantastic opportunity to get some hands-on biological science experience and learn from experienced people.
Bio-blitz will start on Saturday, September 23, and finishes on Sunday afternoon, September 24. Guests will have the option to camp on-site and participate in night activities, such as a night stalk and nocturnal species surveys.
For more information, contact Diana Blacklock at Wagin Woodanilling Landcare on 9861 2222 and to register go to wagin-woodylandcare.org.au.
