Snow Gums face a massive threat from the spread of dieback which is caused by a native beetle – and also super charged by climate change, and localised collapse of snow gum woodlands due to more frequent fires.
Friends of the Earth are hosting a 4 day citizen science event in the Mt Hotham area over summer to map areas of localised loss of these forests.
Each day participants will go out in small groups to map localised Snow Gum loss in the area around Mt Hotham and the Dargo High Plains.
If you’re interested in finding out more, check the event page or get in touch with organiser Cam Walker: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can RSVP for the trip here.
Full details on travel and accomodation and what to bring will be emailed in early January.
