Bellarine and Geelong

Environmental Volunteering Calendar

Come and join Bellarine Bayside and Bellarine Catchment Network and Cultura at North Geelong to learn how we can make our volunteering more inclusive for those within the CALD (Culturally And Linguistically Diverse) community.

This workshop will be facilitated by Cultura and will be followed by a free lunch cooked by Cultura clients and will include a 'meet and greet' to practice your cultural humility skills

Have you ever wondered what those horse-shoe shaped jelly things are? If sharks lay eggs? What all the different shells on the beach are? These questions and more will be answered by Bellarine Catchment Network at this free, family-friendly beachcomb activity.

This activity is aimed at both children and adults so all are welcome. Adults need to accompany children under 12. There are limited spots available so please register.

What's involved? Participants will go on a beachcomb lead by experienced staff, looking for creatures and artefacts along the shoreline. Participants can enter the water up to their knees if wearing booties (either BYO or provided) and if conditions are appropriate, participants can also use provided aquascopes (e.g., plastic underwater viewing device - see image below). Participants will receive educational resources such as posters, brochures and more at the end of the session.

Please BYO hat, sunscreen, water and booties or enclosed shoes like sneakers (no flip flops or sandals). It is suggested to wear bathers or shorts if intending to enter the water.

This event is supported by the City of Greater Geelong. For more information, please email us at or visit
