Central Coast Nature Watch

Central Coast Nature Watch is a project involving a number of partner organisations including Gosford, Wyong and Lake Macquarie Councils, National Parks & Wildlife Service, Rumbalara Environmental Education Centre, Association of Environmental Education (Central Coast Branch) and the Community Environment Network (CEN).

The Nature Watch Diary gives community members the opportunity to record what is happening in the natural environment around us, day by day, throughout the year.

It also gives the community an opportunity to rediscover the seasonal changes and co-happenings in nature which the Aboriginal people observed and understood so well in the thousands of years prior to European impact. By transferring observations to your diary you will also be keeping tabs on the diversity of plants and animals within the Central Coast region.

The diary includes a summary sheet in the Appendices. Update this summary sheet throughout the year and send  to CEN at the end of the year. CEN coordinates and compiles the information sent in and provides feedback to Nature Watchers and relevant organisations.
