Water Bug Blitz
Saturday 5 December, 9:00am – 11:00am

Bookings essential: Book online
Grab a dip net and magnifying glass and join in the Water Bug Blitz to discover which aquatic creatures are living in our creeks. These tiny creatures are great indicators of waterway health, so any water bugs you collect will provide useful information about our creeks. A great Citizen Science program for all the family! All equipment and guidance provided by Council. For more information, contact Jim Casimir on 9911 3579. Numbers limited.
