Collecting data on tuart trees
Would you like to participate in the tuart mapping project? It is a good way to spend time in the bush, hone your abilities to judge measurements and the health of trees, and learn how to use a GPS. There is also the opportunity to become involved in data management and using tracks and waypoints on computer maps.
No experience required! All materials are supplied. You will work with experienced volunteers so can learn at your own pace, and contribute as much or as little of your time as suits you.
This work is suitable for older children (with supervision) and young adults, and is a great family activity in the bush. Please contact us for further information.
