Field Observations, the How of observing and recording nature. Learn how to find, identify and record plants and animals over two workshops in practical ecology with Charles Sturt University staff.

Join this workshop to learn to find and identify plants and animals, and what to do with your observations. Use free smartphone apps to record location information.
• Can you identify an echidna footprint? Or a fox scat?
• What frogs are calling?
• What microbats are flying overhead?
• What weeds are there? How would we record if they are changing over time?
• What makes good habitat for Australian wildlife?

This field-based workshop teaches non-invasive and non-harmful techniques of identifying plants and animals, recording their presence and monitoring change over time. BYO picnic lunch and water bottle. Wear covered shoes/boots and long pants, we are coming into snake season.
