Free wetland workshop at Wamberal


A free Central Coast wetland workshop will be held on Saturday, June 28, at Wamberal Lagoon.

The workshop aims educate people about Central Coast wetlands with attendees given the opportunity to gain knowledge of techniques to evaluate wetland health and monitor water quality. “Wetlands are considered be some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world,” said Central Coast Marine Discovery Centre spokesperson Tam Hanson.

“They support high levels of biodiversity, offer vital habitat for threatened species, provide flood and erosion control and can improve water quality. “However, wetlands continue to be under threat from changes to food plains and clearing for development including here on the Central Coast,” said Hanson. This workshop is possible with funding from the Australian Government, Catchment Action NSW and Hunter Local Land Services.
