Become a Citizen Scientist
Grab your walking shoes and help monitor the biodiversity of Melbourne Gardens on a free guided walk during winter and spring!
Become a Citizen Scientist with ClimateWatch, a citizen science monitoring program developed by Earthwatch Australia in conjunction with the Bureau of Meteorology and The University of Melbourne.
Experts from the Gardens and Earthwatch will take participants along the ClimateWatch trail, sharing their knowledge and helping to record sightings of plants and animals on the ClimateWatch app or recording sheets.
Can't make it to one of the guided walks? Why not head to the ClimateWatch website and download the ClimateWatch Trail map for Melbourne Gardens so you can do the walk at your leisure. Don't forget to download the Field Guide and Field Reporting Sheet, too!
The data recorded will help ClimateWatch to understand how our changing climate is affecting Australia’s plants and animals.
