The Monash Science and Innovation Hub invites you to participate in the
National Waterbug Blitz.
The National Waterbug Blitz is Australia’s first nationwide, Citizen Science, waterway monitoring event. Over the month of October Australians are encouraged to discover how healthy their local waterways and wetlands are, simply by exploring and identifying what
waterbugs live in them.
