Book now for Aquatic Macro-Invertebrate Survey Training

In 2015/16, Brisbane City Council's Creek Catchment Program (CCP) introduced the Waterway Health Assessment Training (WHAT) program to provide catchment groups with regular opportunities to skill up volunteers for their waterway monitoring programs.

The first WHAT workshop for 2018 will be held on Sunday 11th March. The topic is Aquatic Macro-Invertebrate Survey Training and catchment members are encouraged to attend. 

Aquatic Ecologist Natalie Toon will guide participants through the requirements and methodology to undertake an aquatic macro invertebrate survey in their local creek. Training will include capture techniques, identification of macro invertebrates, and how the results relate to waterway health. This is a fantastic workshop for those interested in monitoring creek health, and providing and protecting aquatic habitat.

When:  Sunday, 11th March 2018, 9:00am – 1:00pm (morning tea and lunch included)
Where: 681 Gold Creek Road, Brookfield
Cost:    Free to catchment group members
RSVP by 2nd March
