Coastal and catchment management

Coastal and catchment management is a school excursion in Tomaree National Park for Stage 5 (Years 9-10) students focusing on Geography. We'll walk to the summit of Mount Tomaree with a Discovery ranger, who will highlight the coastal and catchment management issues involved in protecting a relatively undisturbed patch of coastal land in close proximity to the township of Nelson Bay.
