Hawkesbury-Nepean Regional Forum

You are invited!

Join the Hawkesbury-Nepean Waterkeeper Alliance (HNWA) for their annual regional forum 'Empowering Community Knowledge and Connection Through Citizen Science'  in November.

As part of this program we will be hosting a panel discussion which will look to explore and highlight some current citizen science engagement approaches, leading into a community ‘think tank’ which will consider how we can continue to reimagine our approaches to citizen science for the future of our waterways. Please see a draft program below.
