Thursday 5th April - we will meet at Cashens Lane, Guyong for an introductory session about dung beetles, why we want them, how to look after them, how to monitor them, identify and record their presence or absence.  We will then tour around the Bathurst region checking some traps that have been pre set.  This way we can all have some practice identifying, counting, recording species to improve our monitoring abilities.  

Friday 6th April - will be a repeat of Thursday, except in the Molong/Orange area.  We will meet at Euchareena Road, Molong for the information session, then travel out to any properties where traps have been pre set awaiting our newly trained experts in identification!
