Discover our beautiful coast

News article |

Lincoln National Park Rangers are inviting you to family-friendly Beach Detective activities at September Beach as part of the 2018 Nature Play Festival.

Coastal Ranger Elly Schultz said nature play is important for children and activities like this provide unstructured play opportunities for families to experience outdoor activities beyond their backyards.

“They can learn about the critters that live or are washed up on the beach. We all love exploring the coastline and now is your opportunity to learn more about it,” she said.

“Recently we found some cool little critters, including sea stars. Did you know they expel their stomach outside their bodies and engulf their food to break it down and then pull their stomachs back into their bodies? You can learn so much by exploring our beautiful coastline in the Lincoln National Park.”

The Beach Detectives activity is suitable for supervised children aged four and upwards, and will involve beach combing and learning about the weird and wonderful plants and animals that inhabit our coastlines. Rangers will be on hand to explain how you can help look after these creatures in the wild.

The Nature Play Festival aims to highlight and celebrate nature and encourage families and children across the state to get outdoors.

Join the rangers and volunteers from the Friends of Southern Eyre Peninsula Parks on Saturday 29 or Sunday 30 September, 10 AM to 12 PM. Bookings are essential.
