Alpine Citizen Science field trip

20210330_124825.jpg

Last winter, Friends of the Earth published An Icon at Risk, which considers the many threats to the mountains of north east Victoria (the report is available here).

It is obvious that land managers in the Alps understand that Snow Gums are at extreme risk due to more regular fire and die back. However, they do not know the scale of the problem.

So we are going to try and find out. We are running a field trip from JAN 27 - 30, 2022 in the Mt Hotham area.

We are hosting a 4 day citizen science event in the Mt Hotham area over summer to map areas of localised loss of these forests.

You would be welcome to join us.

We are planning to be in the Mt Hotham area from Thursday January 27 until Sunday January 30.

Each day we will go out in small groups to map localised Snow Gum loss.

We will be camping together and there is also an option to stay in a ski lodge at Mt Hotham (for $40 a person per night).

You would need to come self sufficient in terms of food, water, camping gear, and be of reasonable fitness if you want to join the fieldtrips. There is no cost for attending and participants would be covered by FoE’s Public Liability Insurance.
