Winter Activity - Suggestions invited

Posted by michaelb

Hello to the Canberra Nature Map community. Following on from our very successful meetings over the growing season we hope to continue the momentum by having an activity or field day over winter. You are invited to choose from the following options or make make suggestions in the comments on this page.

Possible options are:

An easy outdoor activity, such as a visit to STEP (Southern Tablelands Ecosystem Park), at the National Arboretum.

An indoor activity such as a visit to the CSIRO to check out the National Herbarium or Insect Collection.

Or maybe a visit to Questacon.

I would love a tour of STEP with the experts.

I'd vote for STEP. Actually, just getting together with the NatureMapr community would be the best bit.

My preference would be a visit to the CSIRO's Insect collection and then a walk on Red Hill with the regenerators.

I'd be interested in Step or Herbarium visit - but insect collection would be good for another visit sometime.

Depending on how often and when you think we might have an activity, maybe we could have an indoors one during winter and the STEP visit when plants 'wake up' a bit later.
Interested in whatever is decided.

I think STEP, the Herbarium and Insect Collection are all good options. I feel the latter two options could also allow some training opportunities for members eg. discussion of key features for IDs.

Yes, a tour of STEP with experts would be great and a chance to catch up with the community and also get some sightings at the same time.

A Tour of STEP sounds great.

Perhaps unsurprisingly my vote goes to the outdoor option ;).

One day, I'd be interested in an afternoon/morning of general learning, perhaps? For example: how to make the most of what NatureMapr has to offer, such as how to use the survey facility (is that still happening?); tips and sharing of knowledge from our expert moderators (I'm just keen to learn about our environment and what to look for in different species); or the 'how to' of nature photography
