Mornington Peninsula Ambassadors – Final workshop together

The sun was shining and, as always, our Mornington Peninsula Ambassadors arrived smiling at Jacks Beach, ready for their final coastal workshop on November 10. Despite the army of mosquitos who swarmed in full force before the sun worked its way through the trees, the day was full of activities, a BBQ lunch and the presentation of awards for our well-deserving Ambassadors and volunteers.

Ambassadors began with a talk about local species of frog, including a pair-matching game involving students finding a partner based on the sound of different shakers.

Next, students had the pleasure of meeting and listening to Lionel Lauch as he shared his knowledge on indigenous heritage and culture. Students were amazed by his tools and the many, many resources he identified along the short walk from the coast to the bush.

Following a BBQ lunch, Ambassadors enthusiastically rolled up their sleeves and pitched in, giving the Green Army a hand weeding and pruning the space around Jacks Beach, improving the clearance of walking tracks and over-hanging trees surrounding the car park. The last session gave students an idea of the animals found in Warringine Park and how to identify different skulls of animals that are found in the park, including those of native and invasive species.

  1. Thank you for this article! I have been in Mornington Peninsula when I lived in Melbourne and it was an amazing experience! I visited a lot of places and did a website about it with some articles :)
