3184BeachPatrol Covering the Beautiful Elwood Beaches

3184 Beach Patrol

3184 Beach patrol looks after the beautiful Elwood beaches.  It is sandwiched between the 3182 and 3186 zones.  The Elwood beach is a particularly attractive beach for local families.  Its wide light coloured sandy beach with gentle lapping waves makes it an ideal picnic and swimming destination for family and friends.  When clean, the beach is a gorgeous site.  Lets keep it that way!

Elwood Beach Patrol dates for 2018:    We meet at 9 am, see next beach clean up info on the home page or our facebook page for details of meeting point.

Elwood's July clean up by 3184@beachpatrol.com.au

Our wonderful volunteers turned up in droves to prove that the cooler weather would not deter us from cleaning our beloved beach! Thanks to all who participated. We had nearly 30 people, including several new faces, which is great to see. Our beach really needed the love. There was so much waste everywhere, particularly small pieces including lots of plastic and cigarette butts. So much of what ends up on the beach comes from our city streets and is washed down here or blown in from the surrounds. You all did a great job collecting approx. 46 kg! That's a new record!

See you on 18 August for another clean up starting from the front of Elwood Sailing Club.

There's butter on Elwood Beach by 3184@beachpatrol.com.au

In addition to the 17kg of waste collected, we learned of the mysterious butter blocks that are buried all along the beach. It is unclear how they got there.

Elwood's May clean by 3184@beachpatrol.com.au

We had another great turnout! Almost 30 volunteers this time. The beach, rocks and surrounding grass were all in a bad way following recent rainy weather. Well done team for clearing 22kg of litter, being mostly small fragments that are really harmful to wildlife. It was great to have support from the Eco Centre this time and from Elwood Sailing Club. Our next clean up will be at the Point Ormond car park end of the beach on 16 June.
