Environmental Science – Biodiversity Survey
– Stage 2
Thursday 12th and Friday 13th November
Estuaries are special places along our coastline. Wallagoot Lake estuary is home to many weird and wonderful creatures. Students will be equipped with dip nets and reef boots and will set out to explore this dynamic environment. Students collect a variety of living things and then sort the specimens found, grouping the same species. Students classify into plant and animal groupings and investigate the collected live specimens. Students then head back to the science lab at Bournda Environmental Education Centre where they can further explore their findings using a high powered digital microscope from the Atlas of Life.
Program cost – $2 per student.
