Our Waterwatch programs support people to get involved in exploring and protecting their local waterways.
Our Waterwatch programs connect people with their local waterways and encourage communities to get involved with protecting the natural environments. The program also provides keen citizen scientists with training and tools to become involved in monitoring the health of our waterways. Data collected contributes to scientific research, management planning and on ground actions that improve the health of our waterways.
You can become involved by joining a current Waterwatch group, attending one of our events, using our citizen science apps or downloading resources to learn more about your local waterway.
