Escape to Lincoln National Park during December – Park of the Month
29 November 2018
Lincoln National Park will be abuzz with activities this December as the park once again features as the Department for Environment and Water’s statewide ‘Park of the Month’.
A host of activities are planned including activities to explore the coast, taking a self-guided drive, bushwalking, or joining rangers for a guided, family ‘Beach Bingo’ event.
Coastal Ranger Elly Schultz will co-host the Beach Bingo family events at September Beach with the Friends of Southern Eyre Peninsula Parks volunteers.
“This special two hour school-holiday nature event, on Monday 17 and Friday 21 December from 10 am, is all about getting families outdoors,” said Elly.
“Life can get a bit frantic in the last month of the year so it’s important slow down and to make some time for nature play and quality family connections time.
“Come enjoy the shallows and see critters that live at September Beach, and meet the passionate volunteers that help maintain the park.
“We are likely to see hooded plovers, crabs, colourful sea sponges, fruiting seagrasses and maybe even a nudibranch – a type of sea slug.
“This is bound to be a popular event, and is suitable for supervised children aged four and upwards; so please be sure to book to attend this free event.”
Adventurous park visitors can choose their own self-guided activities, and may get ideas from reading a blog of rangers top tips and watching an online video of natural treasures within Lincoln National Park.
Nature Play SA has also published an illustrated poster highlighting ‘15 Natural Treasures of Lincoln National Park’ which is available online or can be collected from the Port Lincoln Natural Resource Centre and the Port Lincoln Visitor Information Centre.
Local Rangers will be hosting five school groups on guided park walks and marine debris clean-ups in early December, and say there is high demand for this type of activity.
Local teachers may access free Lincoln National Park resources online, including a brochure offering 40 things to do in the Park.
