Care for a spot of frog calling, water bug identification, bird watching, or koala spotting? The third annual Science in the Park: Wildlife Counts event at the Coolart Wetlands and Homestead Reserve in Somers, will be the focus of free science activities on the Mornington Peninsula catering for all ages. PrimeSCI!, along with even more universities, state and local organisations and volunteer groups, will host a day of science seminars, science displays and hands-on activities, wildlife monitoring, and education on sustainable and indigenous practices in the unique wetland environments of the Coolart Reserve.    

An exhibition of regional astronomy and sky photography titled “Adventures under the Southern Sky” by the Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society will be hosted in the Coolart Homestead in the lead up to the Science in the Park event.

Ian Temby, author of Wild Neighbours, will be returning as key speaker, along with Dr Andrea Hinwood, Victoria’s first-ever Chief Environmental Scientist.
