Formula for success? You betcha and soon the national program CoastCare joined with Coast Action to make it even better, offering even more opportunities and extra support for community groups. Most activities are provided for free or for a minimal charge.
Although Summer by the Sea has gone through many iterations large and small this gem of an idea has provided thousands of families with a host of wonderful opportunities to get out and learn about their local environments. The concept has drawn on the expertise and action of private contractors and active environmental community associations to deliver wide ranging activities that anyone can participate in. Having fun and learning about the ocean and coasts for free, could there be anything better?
If you are in Victoria during January 2010 you should go out of your way to take the family along and have some fun while supporting this excellent initiative. If you live somewhere else you should be asking why you don't have a similar program!
