Rockpool creatures in the library

5/07/2017
 
Children of all ages have the opportunity to get up close and personal with a variety of rockpool creatures during the school holidays.

The interactive shows allow children to see and touch different rockpool creatures such as sea stars and hermit crabs, in a safe and exciting environment.

The free one hour shows are organised by Council's Sustainable Shellharbour environmental education program and Shellharbour City Libraries.

Shellharbour Mayor Marianne Saliba said activities such as this were designed to foster a sense of wonder for the natural world.

“We also hope that these sorts of experiences inspire children to care for our environment and the amazing creatures that live around us,” she said.
 
Participants can take home a free copy of Council’s Rockpool Creatures of the Illawarra guide.

The hour-long sessions held at Albion Park Library on Friday 7 July and at Oak Flats Library on Thursday 13 July have booked out extremely quickly.
