NAMN Forum: Citizen Science

26 September, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

WALGA would like to invite you to a Natural Area Management Network (NAMN) forum on Citizen Science. 

Hear how Local Government and their communities can benefit from involvement in citizen science programs.  The event will provide an overview of a range of citizen science programs, and demonstrate how scientists and local communities can work together to achieve cost-effective monitoring programs, ensure ecological research informs policy and management practices and increase environmental awareness. 

Former WA Chief Scientist and keynote speaker Professor Lyn Beazley will be joined by experts from State and Local Government Departments, the WA Biodiversity Science Institute, Conservation Council of WA, Northern Agricultural Catchment Council, Wheatbelt Science Hub, research institutes and community organisations. 

Information presented will include pointers on what makes a good citizen science project, and insights into community engagement, the provision of training, the establishment of partnerships and resourcing. 

Specific project examples will include:

  • the impact of climate change on ecosystems
  • microplastic distribution in oceans
  • quenda movement and ecosystem health (Backyard Bandicoots)
  • biosecurity surveillance for pest detection and reporting 

Cost – $66.00
