Octagonal Hall, WA Wildflowers Eastern Hills Branch, 52 McGlew Rd, Glen Forrest WA 6071, Australia

Wildflower Society monthly meeting.

Monitoring mine site restoration efforts is crucial as it provides early warning of potential restoration failures, which greatly improves the chances of restoring the environment in a timely manner. Drones are a cheap, easy to operate means of surveying large areas in a short amount of time. Able to be outfitted with a variety of sensors, do they represent the future of aerial monitoring of flora, fauna, and geological features? Todd Buters will present the results of his research.
