Streamwatch … in the Blue Mountains

There are currently five active Streamwatch groups in the Blue Mountains: Fitzgerald Creek, Gordon Falls Creek, Leura Falls Creek, Popes Glen and South Lawson Bushcare Group.

Streamwatch is coordinated by the Australian Museum. Members of Streamwatch register with the Museum and are provided with training, water testing kits and support. The Museum also does a visit to a newly proposed site. Streamwatch groups commit to doing water testing at a regular time once a month and uploading the data onto the Streamwatch website. Groups are also encouraged to take part in the Autumn Waterbugs Watch and Spring Waterbugs Watch run by the Museum.

BMCC Bushcare Officers have done the Streamwatch training.

If your Bushcare group is keen to get involved in setting up streamwatch at or near your site please let us know. You can contact your Bushcare officer or Jenny Hill email: jhill@bmcc.nsw.gov.au

Fitzgerald Creek Catchment Day

Come along to discover the area the groups in the catchment are protecting with their work upstream.

This full day event will take you deep into the valley which is a tributary to long Angle Creek (with help with some 4WDs and Bushcare Officers).

We will be working on a patch of Crofton Weed with lunch and morning tea provided.

If you only would like to come for the morning the shuttle ute will be leaving the gate at 9:30 am and returning at lunchtime. If you would like to walk in it would take an hour to get into the valley and it is a steep climb out of the valley.
