Event description
We will be training new Streamwatch methods undertaking a Rapid Appraisal of Riparian Conditions, assessing the health of riparian habitat.

About this event

Streamwatch in partnership with Local Land Services, Western Sydney University, Hawkesbury- Nepean Landcare, Greater Sydney Landcare & Cattai Hills Environmental Network will be hosting a training day for community members on assessing riparian health using "Rapid Appraisal of Riparian Condition" 

Do you care about the environment?

Want to learn more about what really makes a healthy river bank?

Join us for a fun day in the field learning techniques to assess catchment health. 

Riparian habitats are where terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems meet. They are vital sites in a catchment supporting high levels of biodiversity. 

Given the extensive degradation of riparian zones in Australia, there is a need for a rapid method of measuring riparian condition to underpin strategies for improved management.  

The Rapid Appraisal of Riparian Condition index is made up of five sub-indices, each with a number of indicator variables: On the day we will be learning about Habitat, Vegetation cover and structural complexity, Debris, natives vs exotics and features of a river corridor. 

These characteristics provide a good indication of the biodiversity and function of a riparian zone. Upskill yourself, contribute to gaining scientific knowledge and help us report on the health of the Hawkesbury-Nepean River.  This training day is designed for anyone willing to learn, at any experience level no prior background in science is needed. Just bring enthusiasm, enclosed shoes, hat and a water bottle.   

 

Free lunch and training will be provided for on the day.
