New ClimateWatch trail in Marramarra National Park
The staff at the Brewongle Environmental Education Centre is proud to announce the development of a new trail in the Marramarra National Park, as part of their 'Adventure Conservation' program. The ‘Adventure Conservation’ program caters to students who wish to become scientifically literate citizens and provides them with an increased ability to communicate their knowledge and understanding. Students will gain knowledge, skills and experiences that are applicable and transferable to scientific studies at a tertiary level. This 3 day leading program endeavours to encourage students to pursue further studies and careers in science.
Little is known about the impact of climate change on Australia's plants and animals. Marramarra National Park, located approximately 55km north of Sydney and in the Hawkesbury-Nepean Catchment, is an ideal environment for recording information on species to help bridge the information gap, but we need your help! The health of the major river systems including the Hawkesbury River is in decline and face a number of pressing issues including the need for increased water flows, water security, reduced nutrient inputs and greater collaboration among catchment stakeholders.
