Children hunt for fossils

 

POWLETT River Primary School had a fantastic day exploring the coastal environment of Inverloch last week.

After a visit to the Bunurong Environment Centre to see the shell museum and dinosaur exhibits, the school explored the rock platforms at Flat Rocks.

The junior school – led by marine biologist Tabitha and former teacher Val – studied the life in the rock pools in the intertidal zone.

The senior school – led by Mike Cleeland – went fossil hunting and were successful with several being found, one of which will be sent off to the Melbourne Museum for identification.

What a find: Powlett River Primary School student Lochie Knott with the dinosaur bone he found in Inverloch recently. This fossil will be sent to the Melbourne Museum for identification.
