In the lead up to National Science Week we are setting 10 weekly challenges to support our Backyard Species Discovery virtual Bush Blitz.
Each Wednesday, starting June 10, a new challenge will be posted here as well as on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels.
The challenge will be open for 1 week and the winning entry will be posted here as well as on social media on the following Friday.
The winner will receive a (AUD) $30 gift voucher to Snowgum Travel and Adventurewear online store and an official Bush Blitz cap.
We encourage groups entries as well, so if you are a class, Scout/Guide or Landcare group, get together and join the challenge! There will be extra prizes for winning group entries.
