Insects of Jan Juc – Free family fun this weekend


Not sure what to do this Father’s day?

Jan Juc Coast Action (JJCA) is holding the free ‘Insects of Jan Juc’ event this Sunday 7 September.

Plenty of activities will be on offer, including activities for the little ones.  Children will have the opportunity to build ‘insect hotels’ as well as colour-in local insects drawn by local artist Amanda Carson.

The day will also include information about JJCA’s latest exciting project – the development of an online plant catalogue which has been funded by the State Government through Coastcare and is supported by the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (stay tuned for more on this project to be released soon!)

JJCA President Luke Hynes said the catalogue will be great way for everybody to identify and learn more about the indigenous species they see on the caost.
“It will allow non-specialist groups to identify any indigenous plant species by typing in the visual characteristics identified,”

Mr Hynes said the catalogue is also a good way of encouraging locals to plant native plants in their gardens.
“Those looking for plant ideas for their garden will be able to do a quick search using the desired characteristics and will find matching suggestions,” he said.

The activities will be followed by the JJCA Annual General Meeting and a free barbeque lunch.
