Join us for our Asian shore crab field survey and training at Fossil beach (Mornington). We will explore the rocky reef at low tide, looking for Asian Shore Crabs.
Location: Fossil Beach, Fossil Beach Geological Reserve, Mornington
Preparation: If you haven't attended any previous PestWatch webinars or trainings, please watch the Asian Shore Crab Educational Module
What to bring: Wear proper footwear: reef shoes or other close-toed shoes that can get wet. No thongs or bare feet. Bring gloves! Male Asian shore crabs have a strong pinch. Sun protection: sunscreen, hat, long sleeves, wind jacket, reusable water bottle.
Meeting Point: Parking lot near the path to access Fossil and Fosters Beach (630 Esplanade).
This event is shore-based only; we don't go into the water. All ages welcome! Children need to be under supervision of an adult.
