Have you ever wondered what research is taking place at the National Arboretum Canberra? This is your opportunity to learn more and have first-hand experience with the researchers.

The Arboretum is host to several research projects undertaken by groups ranging from dedicated volunteer citizen scientists through to local and interstate university research departments.

Join three of these groups for a fascinating day to discover more about their research, and go out into the forest for a closer look at some of the field work.

The presentations will be looking at the work and findings of the committed volunteers from Frogwatch ACT who visit the dams after dark to listen and record frog activity, the team from the University of Canberra who have installed and monitor sensors recording soil moisture and temperature data, and Associate Professor Cris Brack who oversees projects in the ANU research forests 98 and 99.

Following the presentations, you are invited to venture out with the researchers into the field to get a first-hand look at the work they are doing, as well as a demonstration of the Frogphone – a new innovative device developed by the UC team in association with Frogwatch ACT.

Please note that access to the ANU research forest will be by private vehicle along a dirt road. Walking across uneven ground is also involved. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear.

Refreshments will be available and there will be time for lunch from the cafe or bring your own picnic.
