After the walk we'll have a social BBQ lunch catered by Landcare Tasmania, followed by a group activity led by John Gooderham, Freshwater Ecologist at The Waterbug Company. John will given an introductory training session on collecting samples of waterbugs and the use of a new app for mobile devices to help identify the waterbugs collected. It's simple, easy and fun. John's work is part of the National Waterbug Blitz, a great citizen science initiative for collecting data on the health of rivers and wetlands around Australia.
