Pollinator Surveys

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us survey for pollinators and butterflies at our bushcare sites in the endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland. We run two pollinator surveys per year at each of our bushcare sites – one in Spring and another in Autumn – to monitor how pollinators and butterflies are responding to bushcare work.

The whole family is welcome, but please wear a hat, long sleeve shirt, long pants and enclosed shoes.
