Wed 6th September 2017
43 people joined in a fun and educational day with waterway ecologists Geraldine and Steve Janicke and local bird enthusiasts in carrying out a macro-invertebrate and bird survey of Lake Matilda and Lake Meenulup near Kendenup, near Mt Barker.
This Green Skills’ Citizen Science survey event aimed to provide further clues about what makes these lakes a great haven for birds. The Kendenup Primary School was also involved during the afternoon.
This event was supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State Natural Resource Management Program, supported by Royalties for Regions. It has also been supported by the Great Southern Science Council Regional Science Engagement Project through Great Southern Development Commission and Inspiring Australia. The event is part of Green Skills’ wetland conservation activities and has also been supported through South Coast NRM with funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
