Forest Watch BioBlitz - Deongwar
Come along to our second Forest Watch BioBlitz in Deongwar State Forest!
70,000 hectares (ha) of state forest in South East Qld are home to a rich and important diversity of plants and animals and should be transferred to protected areas. We have launched Forest Watch to help highlight why these area are so important to protect. Using iNaturalist we are creating a network of citizen scientists to demonstrate the diversity of plants and animals that call these forests home.
At our BioBlitz you will join a small group of people who will work together using iNaturalist to take records and observations of what you find in the forest. No need for previous experience using iNaturalist or plant and animal identification. We will run through a quick introduction and team you up with people with more experience. This is a great opportunity to connect to the forest we are trying to protect, taking active steps to help protected it while also learning and having fun with others.
This is a family friendly event, children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We will meet in Esk for a briefing, divide into groups and then carpool to survey locations.
