MARINE CARE RICKETTS POINT FUTURE ACTIVITIES
Thanks to all who provided feedback about the kinds of activities you would like to see happen in the future. The following is a general summary of members’ comments. The comments indicate that the activities we are currently undertaking remain highly relevant, and that there are further programs members would like to see started.
Wider Community Activities
## proposed new activities
Volunteering: For new activities to commence, we need to have volunteers who would be prepared to lead particualr events, such as starting up a fossil observation activity. We are prepared to support and train people in activities also, for example; being an assistant leader to the snorkelling group or to the Beach Patrol group. If you would like to be involved in any of these activities please contact any of the Committee Members directly or email
It was chilly but the die hards all came willing to snorkel! However due to formal E. coli level warnings for local waters, we decided to opt for an informative talk and walk along the beach given by Ray Lewis. He covered many aspects of interesting aboriginal heritage, natural history, local ecology, rock pools and fossils. Thanks Ray!
Mother Natural turned on a beautiful rainbow over the Bay for us!
Then of course we topped it of with a warming hot drink!
Last year we had a snorkel on the Saturday closest to the Winter Solstice, and despite misgivings as to temperature, it turned out to be a success.
Apre dive coffee/tea/soup has never tasted better!
We propose a similar casual snorkel on Saturday 25 June at 9.30 am, off the disabled ramp area, for perhaps half an hour.
With bit of luck this character building event will be blown out by the weather, and it will be straight to the Tea House with a clear conscience…
We look forward to seeing you all there!
Come along for a beach clean up and then a delicious hot drink to warm up and be social afterwards!
Feel free to forward on to others, and bring your friends and family for this wonderful environmental event to preserve your beautiful sanctuary!
