Observe nature. Help science
The ClimateWatch Trail at the Albury Botanic Gardens is a fantastic way to engage with our living collection of Australian native plants and contribute to valuable research in protecting our native plant species.
Discover the trail and become citizen scientists in your own backyard. Your observations will help scientists understand how changes in temperature and rainfall are affecting behaviour of animals and plants. Your observations will be uploaded to the Atlas of Living Australia and can be accessed by the general public and scientists studying climate change.
The app provides information about various plants and animals that can be spotted in the garden including the Eastern Spinebill or crimson bells of the Illawarra Flame tree.
This invaluable information will help scientists better understand how climate change is affecting our wildlife and shape the response to climate change.
