Today I attended the Connected Waters Symposium at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre and saw community action first hand.
It was great to see local council and the community working together on environmental projects. Over 50 people attended the Connected Waters Symposium and discussed a range of topic including:
Citizen Science programs provide a very important source of data about biodiversity. Data and insights gained through the efforts of citizen scientists enable us to learn more about our environments by creating additional data sources.
You can add flora and fauna observations to the Atlas of Living Australia and contribute to this important database.
Local councils have contact information for different environmental groups in your area. We can put you in contact with Streamwatch groups active in Sydney. For other areas of NSW contact your regional coordinator
If you can't find a group to join why not start your own and start exploring your local environment.
