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 and Clifton Springs Curlewis Coastcare 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 email@example.com or visit www.environmentbellarine.org.au
