Inman Valley & Granite Island Excursion

To begin Field Trip week, our ASMS Biodiversity students ventured out into the wild weather to explore some of the state’s spectacular scenery along the Fleurieu Peninsula.

They started the day in Inman Valley, which is the location of a 500-million-year-old boulder called Glacier Rock and witnessed evidence of ancient glaciation and other geological wonders.

After that, they headed off to Granite Island where they were met by the senior representative of the Little Penguin preservation team, Stephen Hedges, who led the tour around the island.

Though the remaining 20 penguins on the island were out at sea swimming, Stephen introduced our students to the efforts of the many local citizen scientists who are assisting in the preservation of the species.‚ÄČ
