The Thirroul Community Garden now runs a Streamwatch group for Hewitts Creek. Streamwatch is a citizen science program which helps us to understand and monitor our waterways.
The group has done training and meets on the first Sunday of the month at 10.30am to run the tests. Data is then sent through to the museum for collection. Anyone interested (over 18) please contact us.
Two of our members have done the waterbug blitz training, and will carry out Waterbug testing in Spring of 2019. Streamwatch monthly testing, because of chemicals involved is limited to over 18’s. Waterbug blitz need only be carried out once a year and is an all ages activity. Check the ‘whats on’ page for dates.
