What is the latest with Waterwatch?
Volunteers wanted for Waterwatch Program
The North East Waterwatch program still has a few places left for new volunteers. We are looking to expand waterway health monitoring to uncovered priority waterways in the region and have been looking for new volunteers to monitor sites on the King and Lower Ovens, Kiewa, Mitta Mitta and Upper Murray catchments. The program would particularly like to partner with local Landcare and community groups in the target regions. Waterwatch monitoring comprises monthly water quality testing and water bug assessments (twice a year in Spring and Autumn). New monitors would be trained and provided start-up equipment. If you are interested or require more information, please get in touch with Sam Gitahi, Waterwatch facilitator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0418 145 240.

To support the launch, we are offering a number of schools the chance for additional support in 2018, including:
