Volunteer Position – Kyogle, NSW

Looking for someone to do some vegetation monitoring up near Kyogle NSW. Must have some idea of what to do with GPS and find points using one. Must also have afairly good level of fitness. The work involves monitoring 8 quadrats of 20 m x 20 m, estimating vegetation cover of lantana, grass, trees etc in the understorey, midstorey and canopy. Then taking photos of trees that being scored for canopy health.

The project is based on a private property where lantana is being sprayed and a bell miner colony is located. We want to determine whether spraying lantana on a large scale will cause colony movement and ultimately canopy health increases.

I can provide all training if required. It’s a volunteer position but it will be good for your resume and I can provide references. Once data is collected, you can also help with writing up the paper and be a co-author.
