Welcome to the ANU 2014/15 stagwatching season!

The Australian National University will be conducting possum stagwatches again this summer.  As with previous years, we will be doing our surveys through until early April.
We plan to kick off our stagwatching early in the new year, but at this stage we primarily want to get contact details of those who are keen to come along in 2015 so we can keep you in the loop.
Please provide us with your contact details (name, mobile and email) if you are interested.  If you are not interested, but have received this email, please let us know and we will remove you from our list.  If you know others who may be interested, please pass this on.
It is really important we know if you are planning on joining us so you get to the right place and don’t get left behind.

Meeting place will generally be Healesville Coles car park (down River St end) at 6:30pm, but please be in contact so we can confirm meeting time and place.  Return usually around 10:30-11pm.  DON’T JUST TURN UP without letting me know – we may not be there!

Hope to see you all out in the forest soon!

Volunteering Opportunities

Throughout the year we regularly go “in the field”. This includes activities in the forest which cater to a range of physical abilities including;

Some fieldwork activities require special skills such as a Working at Heights training certificate for volunteers working up ladders in the field. Parks Victoria kindly provide this training free of charge to volunteers and training programs are frequently offered.
