Celebrating January’s Family Literacy Week, The Mount Waddington Family Literacy Society is planning ocean-themed Literacy Fairs in Port Hardy and Port McNeill with Mother Goose Storytelling, Literacy Activities & Crafts, Snacks, Door Prizes, and a FREE BOOK for every child attending.
And we’re excited to have special guest The Marine Detective to present ‘Ocean Mysteries’ to increase our local ocean literacy.
Jackie Hildering is “The Marine Detective”, acclaimed marine educator and whale researcher. Join her to discover more of the beauty, fragility and mystery of our local marine neighbours. She will be sharing some of what she has learned from local marine life – from sea slugs to Humpback Whales! This will include a strong focus on helping children deduce why animals are designed the way they are through discussion of animals’ adaptations.
