1st Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts
Wednesday 12th June May 2013
Leaders from Macclesfield RSPB Wildlife Explorers visited
Congleton 1st Beavers and Cub Scouts with their 'Beach in a Bucket session'.
Just in time for the children to learn more about coastal wildlife
before the summer holidays commence.
We discussed the incredible long-term impact of litter on our beaches,
how it harms wildlife and persists in the environment much longer than we imagined.
Using their 'Beach in a bucket', the group identified real examples of strandline finds like whelk eggs, mussels, limpets, sponges, driftwood, seaweed and horn wrack.
Cubs played a run around game that illustrated the incredible biodiversity of our beaches and coasts.
The group attempted human sculptures of a school of fish
(some were better at making fish faces than others!)
And sea creatures like ragworms and sea anemones.
Thank you Congleton 1st Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts for inviting us back to visit once again!
