Yellow Box Dispatch - ACT Conservation Council Newsletter - Late November 2014

Nature Near Me - Nature tourism App
Many of you might be interested to hear that we have just released a, for want of a better description, nature tourism app. It is now available in the Apple Store with the Android version coming in late December. So if you have an IPhone or IPad it would be wonderful if you could download it and have a go. You can access it by searching for “Nature Near Me” in the App store or going to https://itunes.apple.com/au/
At the moment the app is populated with sites described by OEH staff but soon we will open the app up to all and sundry to contribute to and share their knowledge and passion for nature places.
