Kate Osborne, Beach Bonkers: Suffolk Shingle- Tales of Treasure & Trash

October 14 @ 19:00 - 20:00

Kate Osborne is a naturalist who founded Beach Bonkers to inspire people about Suffolk’s shingle beaches through beachcombing. Vegetated shingle habitat is internationally rare and surprisingly fragile, and the plants that thrive here have special adaptations to survive the desert-like conditions.

Kate will show some of the treasures that can be found in the stones, including the shells of voracious carnivores, the egg cases of cannibal sea snails, and fossil teeth from woolly mammoths and sharks … every single find tells a story. The best comment Kate can hear at the end of a beachcomb is “I will never look at a beach the same way again.”
