We are inviting you to come to MERC for NZAEE Seaweek – Kaupapa Moana! Seaweek is New Zealand’s annual national week about the sea. Hosted by the NZ Association for Environmental Education, Seaweek is taking place this year from Saturday 3 to Sunday 11 March 2018. It’s about learning from the sea; exciting and inspiring all New Zealanders to renew their connections with the sea! The theme this year is; “Toiora te Moana – Toiora te Tangata – Healthy Seas, Healthy People”.

This event is about enjoying and appreciating the ocean. On Sunday March 11th you will have the opportunity to have a go at some ocean activities we offer at MERC! The particular water-sports we will offer are dependent on the weather conditions but we will have exciting water activities nontheless! You dont need any experience, we will have helpful instructors on hand to educate and supervise activities. You might get to go out sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding, maybe even snorkelling or surfing- we will "sea" what water conditions mother nature brings us! We will have educational displays and hands-on activities for when you're out of the water. Plus our knowledgeable staff would love to have a chat to you and impart some sea knowledge!

Please bring appropriate water wear; togs/rash tops, wetsuits, sports wear...not cotton! Find more details & RSVP on our Facebook Event Page, link above.

Entry by donation. There will be a BBQ lunch at noon!
