NatureMapr 2018 workshop & forum

Friday 11th May
10:30am - 3:00 pm

CSIRO Discovery Centre, Clunies Ross Street,

As a much valued Moderator or Superuser, we invite you to join the NatureMapr
workshop on Friday May 11th at the CSIRO Discovery Centre, Clunies Ross Street,
Canberra from 10:30am.

We welcome the new Atlas of Life: Budawang Coast contributors to the NatureMapr Network, a fellowship of interest in mapping biodiversity in our respective regions. This is a great opportunity for us to meet together and discuss our overarching aims, the detail and principles of our Moderation process, how we can develop our capacity for observation, recording and science and how we can attract scientists and natural resource managers to work with us for our mutual benefit.

If you are unable to join us at the meeting, we encourage you to contribute your comments and suggestions, and to raise any issues for consideration. Please submit your thoughts using the 'Absentee Comments' form.
