Voluntary Citizen Science in Central Australia – Trevor Blake

When: Thursday 12th May, 2022, at 2pm

Trevor Blake is a very experienced naturalist and photographer who was in the first group of Australian Garden Ambassadors. He is also renowned as the illustrator for the Encyclopaedia of Australian Plants suitable for cultivation by Rodger Elliot and David Jones. Trevor is an excellent communicator so do not miss out on this Open House.

Here are some words from Trevor:
“Wanderings and a dose of Citizen Science has taken us to some very strange and remote parts of this country. Mounting a formal expedition from museums, Herbariums and the like to collect and record is a very expensive business indeed, so to have a group of retirees with some expertise who do this free is a real bonus. It provides an opportunity to explore and understand this country.
 
We will have a look at the deserts, see a little of the life that makes us unique, from the furry creatures of the night that leave tracks all over the dunes to the wriggles that are both fascinating and beautiful. Insects and birds abound and to be taken by the hand shown the food availability by traditional owners of country is a privilege.”


Trevor will be sharing his experiences with Members only on Thursday 12th May.
