School Holidays Family Programs:
Beachcombing & Botanic Garden Explorers

Ever wondered why some shells have a perfect hole in them? Or what those curled up jelly logs are on the beach? Would you know a shark egg if you saw one? Join the EcoCentre for a shoreline shell survey and treasure hunt! We'll measure, photograph and describe shells for science and learn about the animals that live in our beautiful Bay.

15 April, 3-4 pm, Kerferd Road Pier, Albert Park
16 April, 3-4 pm, Groyne (rock wall) at Point Ormond


Explore the plants, animals and secret spots of the St Kilda Botanical Gardens. Try to spot the tawny frogmouth family, feel the grit of sandpaper fig leaves, and count how many people it takes to hug the fig tree.

16 April, 10:30-11:30 am

All programs $10/person or $20 per family (2 adults/2 kids). Email april@ecocentre.com to book!
