The recent social distancing rules necessarily imposed upon us don’t necessarily mean we can no longer connect with nature.
Our Chairman, Jim Pope, offers some great advice here about reducing the spread of weeds at home while we are nationally reducing the spread of Covid-19.
And our colleagues at the Cubberla-Witton Catchments Network (CWCN) have extended MCCG members an invitation to join them in assessing the diversity of our local species via their QuestaGame Challenge.
Assessing what you have on site is a wonderful way of staying connected, a wonderful way of finding out whether our rehabilitation work is yielding results and a wonderful way of figuring out what fauna, flora and fungi we have in Brisbane’s beautiful west.
- Who can participate? Anyone who has a smart phone, ipad or tablet and knows how to take photos with those devices.
- Do I need to be able to identify my photos? No, you don’t! You can just submit photos.
Everything uploaded to QuestaGame will end up with the Atlas of Living Australia, so why not become a Citizen Scientist?
Download the free app onto your smartphone, ipad or tablet via Google Play or iTunes. Details on how to play can be found on https://questagame.com/
Once you’re set up, join the Cubberla-Witton Catchments Network Clan. The password to join is ‘possum’.
If you have questions or need some help setting it all up, send Jutta Godwin an email: [email protected]
Now is an ideal time to GET INVOLVED in SOMETHING DIFFERENT about SOMETHING TO LOVE and HAVE SOME FUN!!!
Our thanks to Jutta (CWCN’s Education Officer) and to CWCN for their invitation …. love your work!
