Eco Discovery of Wetland Wonders

Mangroves are special places to explore. They are part of our unique Sunshine Coast wetlands, a place where some mangrove trees are older than our grandparents. They are a unique place that provided Aboriginal people with food and material to make tools and where crabs and other creatures scurry amongst the leaf litter. Where else can trees live in saltwater? Come for a walk with the Coolum Coast Care junior leaders and learn the secrets of mangroves. The Eco Discovery program starts at 10am at the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary, Sports Road, Bli Bli. Overflow parking is available at McMartins Strawberry Farm and after the program you can pick fresh strawberries or have a berry treat. The program is geared to children from 4 to 11 years but it’s a family event.
