Citizen Science Month - August 2020
We are actively seeking registrations to join into the 2020 Citizen Science Month.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Citizen Science Month last year.
The results will help Pest Free Kaipātiki to track progress in restoring our local native bush and wildlife.
In addition to our popular predator detection chew card campaign, we included four extra activities to allow everyone in the community to take part:
Explore the forest and detect predators
Recognise and record destructive pest plants
Assess the health of our local rivers and streams
Monitor our native birds and wildlife
Photograph the urban forest to help us track positive change
Check out last year's 2019 Family Fun Day video. With CoVid-19 this year's Citizen science month may look a little different, but will be no less enjoyable. Thanks to all the attendees, sponsors, volunteers and Kauri Park School for helping make last year's event possible. We were delighted to have guest speakers Suzy Cato, Kila Haitana and Brett Stansfield who made the day even more special.
Participants can learn up to five simple ways they and their families can contribute towards science and environmental protection across the Kaipātiki Local Board area.
Pest Free Kaipātiki is delighted to have Samsung New Zealand and a number of other
official sponsors supporting Citizen Science Month.
