Children are being invited to become “nature detectives” while learning about the Barngarla culture with Sea Country Craft – Beach Detective at Tunarama.

Hosted by Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula and the Port Lincoln Barngarla Aboriginal Community, the event on January 27 allows children to experience beach creatures up close.

The session will also showcase some of the Barngarla sea language and culture through arts and crafts and activities.

These activities will include sand art, yarning and lino printing.

Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula marine parks regional coordinator Shelley Paull said staff would work with Emmalene Richards and her family to run the event.

“We’re excited to invite kids to turn the beach into a live discovery session and outdoor art-craft studio,” she said.

Mrs Richards said the Barngarla community was excited about this opportunity to partner with Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula at Tunarama.

“We are an active community group that enjoys sharing our culture and language and this is a great way to start the year’s community interactions,” she said.

Children will receive a take home pack about the Barngarla culture and beach creature information.

The free event will begin at 1pm with activities starting from the Children’s Tipi at Tunarama.
