Elsternwick Park Love Or Street: final clean for 2019

A smaller group than usual, with nine volunteers defying a chilly wind. Still plenty to clean up: old, deteriorating umbrellas; lots of soft plastic fragments trapped by the vegetation following recent windy weather; still finding old and fresher bottles and cans from drinkers using the reserve. Eels were spotted in the lake in the reserve.

Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186 - a safer Nature Reserve for our creatures

Seventeen volunteers ignored the looming clouds and removed 27 Kg of litter from the reserve today. Drink containers were clustered under a clump of trees, perhaps a party after dark. With young birds of all sorts now fledging and learning to fend for themselves, we’re glad we cleared these threats.

Elsternwick Park Love Our Street Oct 2019

The Nature Reserve seems a lot cleaner now. Since launching in May, the group and individual members at other times have removed 100 kg of litter from the Park. This means all our special creatures are much safer from entanglement and from ingesting plastic or other harmful items. Creatures downstream in the Canal and Port Phillip Bay benefit too.

Great going everyone.

Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186

Fathers' Day and still 11 volunteers came along to help collect over 22 kg of litter from the Nature Reserve. Concerned about the volume of polystryrene entering this lower section of Elster Creek now the flow has been restored following recent works and the number of used dog poo bags simply discarded, not binned!

Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186 August - great turn out

All smiles: well-deserved! Great to see everyone helping to remove so much litter from our Nature Reserve. Doubly important as Spring approaches and breeding season will see chicks and small creatures vulnerable.

Fantastic to have new members join us and to welcome Bayside Mayor Michael Heffernan with Councillors Sonia Castelli and James Long. 

Lots of beautiful birds around to thank us
Lots of pretty fungi spotted, indicating a healthy environment
