Citizen forester training event

February 18, 2016

On Friday 12 February we had a training event for our Citizen Forester Program in Royal Park. Volunteers learned how to conduct vegetation surveys in parks and streets, helping us to identify different vegetation types and habitat distribution across the municipality. Over the next six weeks, the Citizen Foresters will carry out vegetation surveys in their own time, ultimately contributing to a ‘current state’ habitat map that will guide our work in the future.
