On Saturday 26 September UTS is giving Karuah Valley residents the opportunity to visit its Stroud Field Station for the first time. From 11am to 3pm at the UTS Field Station (Near Alderley Creek) and there is no cost. The Field Station is used as an environmental teaching and research facility and as a field base for further studies in the surrounding region. The Open Day program will appeal to people of all ages with hands on activities, competitions, scientific equipment displays, a tour of the bushland site and the chance to test your own water sample. There is even a special guessing competition for those who can count yabbies! Not to mention a free sausage sizzle operated by the Stroud Public School P&C Association.
