Beach Excursion

From May to mid-October the Lovén Centre Tjärnö offer a beach excursion, where participants discover life on a shallow sandy bottom. We bring field equipment (waders, aquascopes, spades, nets etc.) and a trained marine biologist. However, group participants are the most active, finding lugworm, sand gaper, common shrimp, shore crab, netted dogwhelk, flatfishes, sand eels, eelgrass etc. etc. Together with the group, the marine biologist go through the findings and inform about seasonal variation and the importance of shallow soft bottoms to the fishery, for instance.

This activity is equally engaging for adults as for children.

Maximum group size is 20 persons. The beach excursion lasts 2 hours. We offer the beach excursion workdays daytime, but if agreed upon groups can also visit during evenings and weekends.

Welcome with your booking!
