NRM Education recent activity
NRM Education delivers a wide range of activities to get people involved with sustainability.
Hallett Cove BioBlitz
The community and scientists came together to survey as many animals, birds and plants as they could find at the Hallett Cove Beach BioBlitz on 13-14 November 2015.
The event welcomed around 450 community members, and over 100 students from local schools. The NRM Education team ran 'Be a Beach Detective' sessions to help students identify the species that live in the intertidal zone, like the five-armed seastar.
Children and adults triggered their five senses at NRM Education’s stall at Marion Celebrates on 29 March.
Activities ranged from guessing the smells of nature (some more pleasant than others!), listening to bird sounds, and touching native and feral animal’s fur and spikes.
A 'What's in the box' guessing game also had children exploring their sense of touch to discover a range of native seed pods and cones.
