Treasure Beach Centre on Durban’s Bluff is rich in history and ecological importance. It is the site of the original radar tracking station for coastal defense during World War 2 and has one of the last remaining patches of coastal grassland. The Centre has been operating since 1985 and offers a wide diversity of educational experiences to all ages.
Treasure Beach Centre is one of the four Environmental Education centers run by WESSA KZN. We focus on working with local and international school groups, ranging from grade R to 12, as well as university students and trainee teachers and community members.
Their courses are conducted as a ‘hands on’ outdoor classroom experience, with interactive activities and workshops. These encourage a practical understanding of ecology, and the individual’s role in caring for the environment and preserving our National Heritage.
