Event description

Description

The Yarra Riverkeeper Association would like to present the Yarra Catchment Atlas, our upcoming project. We have had such a success and so much public interest we have decided to have an interactive, informative seminar where we will give a rundown of what the Yarra Atlas is, what it includes, how you can contribute, how it will benefit your work and how it will benefit the Yarra.

To those unfamiliar with the Yarra Atlas it is an online database that houses crucial information about the Yarra River specifically. We have liaised with community groups as well as other organisations to carefully curate the information that will be available in the database.

The Yarra Catchment Atlas is an online database about the Yarra River that holds crucial information including biodiversity, flora and fauna, water quality, pH levels, salinity, historical areas, indigenous sites of historical significance among others. As a tool, it will be useful to community groups to gain a deeper understanding of the changes in their areas of interest.

Join us at the seminar to find out more!

We are inviting anyone and everyone who wants to attend and has some interest in the Atlas. The event will take place at the Park View Room. It is a 5-minute walk from Camberwell Train station and it is accessible by tram (#75, stopping at Camberwell Primary School). Please enter via the LIBRARY, we will have prompts directing you to the Park View Room.

The event will run from 10-1 (approximately).
