Unfortunately the Waterway Health Assessment Training (WHAT) Revision Day at the Yoorala Street Community Garden, The Gap has been cancelled.
If, however, you have attended previous training sessions and are still interested in attending a 2017 session, please e-mail Anna Bourke, emphasising that you are a volunteer member of MCCG Creek Health Monitoring program. Anna’s email address is: [email protected]
If you have not previously attended a WHAT session or if you have missed one in the last 12 months, please email Anna and provide an EOI in attending our WHAT program in 2017. We will record your details and send you a draft calendar of events shortly so that you can plan in advance to attend future events or promote to your network.
During training, we generally go over each component covered by WHAT, including:
- use of the horiba for phys/chem parameters
- fish sampling and id
- macro invertebrate sampling
- rapid assessment of riparian condition (vegetation assessment)
We incorporate all these items into one monitoring event to demonstrate how this might look for your group on the ground.
Please consider joining us – we’d love to hear from you!
