Microplastics training for World Environment Day

June 5 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm


We need your help!

This hands-on workshop led by Western Sydney University School of Science academic Dr Michelle Ryan with the support from trained Western’s undergraduate Science students and Techincal Support Services, is seeking community volunteers to help us count how many microplastics are present in the Hawkesbury-Nepean River. You will also learn more about how to take a sediment sample and what to look for under the microscope. The data you collect will be recorded and used to publish our first report card for a healthier Hawkesbury-Nepean River.

When: Saturday, 5th June 2021 (World Environment Day)
Time: 9:30am – 2:00pm
Where: Meet at Windsor Beach, Macquarie Park, Windsor, followed by Western Sydney University Hawkesbury campus, Richmond.
