Work­shop is per­fect for na­ture lovers

Narrogin Observer - - Observer News - Gen Har­vey

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 the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment and per­forminter­est­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, such as fauna trap­ping.

With the sup­port of the State NRM Of­fice, Wa­gin Woody Landcare en­gaged 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 great 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-time ac­tiv­i­ties, such as night stalks 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.
