Natural Resources South East Team Leader Sustainable Landscapes Tania Rajic said the program aimed to link people with the local coastline.

“We want people to have fun while learning about our fabulous region, the landscape and the wildlife,” Ms Rajic said.

“Coastal Connections activities are a window into this amazing area.

“Whether it’s an intertidal rockpool, sandy beach, estuary or a moonlit coastal lake, there’s always something new to discover.”

The free program runs from January 2 to January 14, 2018, with activities at Kingston, Robe, Beachport, Southend, Carpenter Rocks and Port MacDonnell.

Ms Rajic said: “We have a range of activities for everyone from adventurous adults to curious kids: guided birdwatching tours with local experts, sea critter craft sessions, bush tucker experiences, snorkelling at Piccaninnie Ponds and so much more.”

The full program is available for download on the Natural Resources South East website naturalresources.sa.gov.au/southeast or you can pick up a copy at your local Visitor Information Centre.
