Mountains to Sea Wellington are super excited for the first of six community snorkel days... providing gear, guides and good times. Free of charge, we want as many people as possible to get their faces under the water and connected with our local marine environment.
This is an awesome opportunity to learn more about the fascinating array of organisms that seek shelter within the reserve's protected boundaries.
We will also have local ocean experts joining us on dry land to share their knowledge on seaweed, sponges and many other amazing creatures found along our coastline, as well as onshore activities for all the family.
