Citizen Science

Citizen science involves public participation and collaboration in scientific research, with the aim of increasing scientific knowledge and community engagement. It’s a great way to harness community knowledge, skills and passion to help answer questions about the Hills and Fleurieu region, and the best management options for our precious landscapes. Our citizen science program is exciting, varied and constantly evolving; covering surface water quality, groundwater, aquatic and terrestrial biodiversity, and land condition.

We monitor to:

  • involve the community in management decisions
  • support sustainable agriculture
  • support rehabilitation projects
  • contribute to research projects
  • influence natural resource management
  • build local knowledge, engage and educate.
