Sharing a passion

Bush Blitz scientists, citizen scientists and local community groups shared their passion for Australia’s amazing biodiversity with members of the public during the Bush Blitz at the Australian National Botanic Gardens last weekend. Canberrans who weren’t put off by some early wild weather had a unique opportunity to learn from the experts, joining them in the field lab and on collecting trips around the Gardens.
