Bellarine Nature Cadets

Bellarine Nature Cadets began in 2017 to provide families with opportunities to learn about the coastal environment of the northern Bellarine Peninsula. It is well documented that participating in nature-based education activities improves children’s affinity and empathy for the natural environment, resulting in kids who are more likely to care for the natural world when they are older. The program delivers fun, place-based and hands-on activities on the coast, allowing kids to explore and connect with the natural world.

Bellarine Nature Cadets runs after school for 6 weeks each spring and autumn. A variety of activities are offered with activities in past programs including Wadawurrung Cultural sessions, rock pooling and beach combing, fishing, bushwalking, building native insect hotels and enviro craft.

The program is aimed to engage with a range of ages, but is most suitable for 12 years and younger. All cadets must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.
