Community groups which support the Blue Mountains Bushcare Program would love your help.
Even if you can’t make it to Bushcare, there is so much you can do just by photographing the important weeds you see around you.
Priority Weeds are plants that have the potential to pose a biosecurity risk to human health, the economy, the livability of our city and the environment.
This will help us:
- view a map of priority weeds across the catchment
- reduce the impact of weeds
- detect new weeds
Once you return home, simply download the iNaturalist App, then upload your smartphone photos to iNaturalist.
A combination of artificial intelligence and citizen science will identify the species in your photos.
Your observations will be mapped by our project, and you will have made an important contribution to your catchment.
