Wharf to Wharf – Fire Recovery and Rocky Shore Investigation – National Science Week
Thursday 19th August
Merimbula has a number of magical marine and coastal environments to explore which are a rich stimulus for learning about the natural environment. Students will examine the fire history of areas burnt on Long Point to see what happens to vegetation after a fire event.
A visit to the Merimbula Wharf rockpools will include a biodiversity survey in which students document and photograph local intertidal species using iNaturalist. This program also includes a guided tour of the Merimbula Aquarium. Students will learn about the ecology of their marine environment and meet some fascinating creatures along the way!
Cost per student: Nil
This program can have a maximum of 16 students. Due to Covid-19 only one school will attend and COVID-safe practices will apply.
Note: This workshop is supported by the Wharf to Wharf Walk Community Project funded by the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund through joint Commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Funding arrangements and the Lions Clubs of Pambula-Merimbula and Tathra.
