    The project will deliver a series of workshops for community members to increase their capacity to use currently available Citizen Science apps available for use on smart devices.

    Using the Atlas of Living Australia App, the Marri App and the Birds in Backyards App, the Shire of Kalamunda will train community members in how to provide good Citizen Science data in support of their biodiversity strategy and the Swan NRM strategy.

    The plan is to train at least 60 volunteers over the course of this project. The trained volunteers will then collect data and carry out surveys using this training.
