Citizen Science


Help online with a citizen science project on Aussie beaches.

Check it out at or if this project is not to your liking, check out any of the other citizen science projects (history, nature, llimate ...) going on at There are usually many active at any given time and some on hold waiting for a new set of data.

How knows,  the Snow spotter may have a psychological cooling effect!

Help Needed



Our little community music school in Pascoe Vale needs to make a stage and costumes and also requires some assistance with sound for our upcoming outdoor Christmas concert on the 16 December. 

We would love any help in the form of: 

- donations of pallets or other platforms

- help to build a removable platform for our students 

- help making costumes and set design

- help with sound and audio/music before and on the day

- admin help

We would love to offer some amazing music lessons in return 🎶 in our multi-instrumental programs for children from birth to 8 years of age.

Please contact us if you would like to be part of our new community social enterprise musical protect. 

We build communities through music education and celebrate in highly subsidised programs for at-risk communities.
