'Bellingen Riverwatch: Our River, Our Future' is an innovative citizen science program, which aims to create opportunities for scientists and community to work together to monitor and care for the health of the Bellinger and Kalang Rivers.
Collecting monthly water quality data requires consistent long-term effort and a core part of the program will be the development of a group of passionate and dedicated volunteer citizen scientists. Volunteers will be trained in water quality monitoring techniques by lead scientists in the field, and will assist in a monthly water quality snapshot of river health.
All volunteers will receive training to confidently carry out water quality testing in carefully selected sites across the Bellingen Shire. As a volunteer, you will have many opportunities to learn, ongoing feedback and get to contribute to our river and threatened species conservation, including the critically endangered Bellinger River Snapping Turtle.
