Local youths – 3 opportunities for you

Who says there’s nothing to do for youth on the coast? Here’s three novel ways our teens can be involved in our community and learn new skills!

Eco-film science club trial

A free Science Club on the Cooloola Coast will be trialed on our coast between now and Christmas, thanks to Cooloola Coastcare and Inspiring Australia.

The Club’s first project will be led by local underwater cameraman and marine biologist, Josh Jensen.

Featured in National Geographic, Discovery Channel and BBC productions, Josh will run a series of weekend, holiday or after school workshops on filmmaking to help young people create their own environmentally-themed short films.

Cooloola Coast families with children in the 10 – 16-year age group, send an email now if your kids would like to be involved.

Email Coordinator@cooloolacoastcare.org.au to find out more!
