The Scoop

Hunter Region Landcare

Does your Landcare site have a creek or river nearby? If so, Hunter Local Land Services and the National Waterbug Blitz would like to encourage you to participate in a Waterbug Blitz!

Hunter Local Land Services has 2 waterbug survey equipment kits to give away, which provide everything you need to undertake your own Waterbug Blitz.  Waterbugs are an indicator of water quality – the type and number of waterbugs found in a waterway can tell us a lot about how healthy that waterway is.

Undertaking a waterbug survey is simple, fun and suitable for any age.  Head to to find out more about taking part in a Waterbug Blitz, download The Waterbug App, and contribute to a nationwide waterway monitoring event!

If you would like a kit, please email – the first 2 groups to email will receive a kit.

Please only email if you are able to collect a kit from the Hunter LLS Paterson office.
