Event description

Description

The City of Gold Coast in collaboration with the Gold Coast Catchment Association is hosting the National Waterbug Blitz on the 9th and 10th of September 2018.

What is the Waterbug Blitz?

The National Waterbug Blitz is Australia’s first nationwide waterway monitoring event. In spring each year, Australians are encouraged to become ‘citizen scientists’ and investigate how healthy their local waterways and wetlands are, simply by exploring and identifying what waterbugs they contain. The National Waterbug Blitz is a month-long event to be held in September/October each year, commencing in 2018.

Why the Waterbug Blitz?

- The wellbeing of our freshwater ecosystems is vitally important, and this project will help us look after them.
- Everyone can get involved to help put our waterways under the magnifying glass by collecting valuable data.
- Citizen science isn't just great for the environment - it's fun, good for you and good for the community.

When and where is the Waterbug Blitz?

Sunday the 9th: Introductory course from 10am till 3pm
Monday the 10th: Advanced course from 9:30am till 4pm

We will be at the Laver Family Park in Mudgeeraba (across from the Mudgeeraba Creek State School) both days.

Lunch included.
