‘Why Shoreham Beach is Special’ :
Friends of Shoreham Beach are hosting a free event to celebrate our very special beach: Church of the Good Shepherd Hall on Saturday 20th August, 10.30am
Shoreham Beach is a fascinating place to explore and this event will provide an introduction to the beach from its rare vegetated shingle habitat and wildlife to the fascinating story that the pebbles reveal. Steve Savage, our Marine Biologist will help you to:-
-Discover what to look out for, including egg cases and shells washed up by the tide, sea and wading birds and occasional visitors such as seals.
-Learn about our special character Ed the Bear who has been visiting scientists around the world to find out about the ocean and how global issues may have an impact on Shoreham Beach.
The event will begin with an indoor session that will include several activities to help you find out more about the beach and also conservation issues such as micro-plastics. Then at 11.45pm it will be followed by activities on the beach to use what you have learned.
The event is aimed at families but all welcome (no unaccompanied children please). Bring a packed lunch to eat on the beach. This event is funded by the Awards for All Heritage Lottery celebrating Shoreham Beach’s 10 years Anniversary as a Local Nature Reserve.
