Set against a backdrop of impressive red rocks and climbing walls, Red Rocks beach is sheltered by bush and has plenty of rock pools to explore and discover. As the ocean retreats, it leaves an abundant array of sea creatures on display which our expert Phillip Island facilitator will identify and discuss, explaining how each of us can minimise our impact on these fragile creatures. There will also be a marine scavenger hunt and children will learn about sea fossils and even make their own to take home.
Our marine kid’s school holiday program offers you the best of the outdoors in a relaxed and supportive learning environment. With a low tide, the children will discover all the wonderful creatures that live amongst the rock pools and some interesting facts such as is sea lettuce really a lettuce? They will also be exploring the rock pool ecosystems, the various habitats that these animals call ‘home’ and also how litter affects the marine environment.
Our workshop facilitator, Nadine, is an early childhood educator who has over 10 years experience working as an Education Ranger at the Phillip Island Nature Park. She has extensive knowledge of the marine life and local habitats that she passionately shares with the next generation of environmental protectors.
This is a great opportunity for children to spend two hours of uninterrupted exploring guided by a local expert on marine life.
