3198 BeachPatrol Covering the Seaford Beaches

3198 BeachPatrol
The Seaford Foreshore Reserve is one of the few remaining substantial, continuous strands of natural coastal vegetation near Melbourne. Seaford is notable for this reserve, which divides the beach from Nepean Highway along the whole length of the suburb. This reserve was the site for an extensive dune restoration program undertaken by the Port Phillip Authority in 1972, under the title of the "Seaford Experimental Project". 

 

The program involved extensive areas of fencing, revegetation and the installation of walking tracks, seats, tables and shelters. The Seaford beach is a long stretch of beautiful beach and 3198Beachpatrol wants to keep it that way. We meet once a month to spend an hour cleaning litter off our beach, then go to a local café afterwards for a coffee and chat. We meet on Sunday mornings.

Well done team on braving the wild elements last Sunday and making it along to our August beach clean. Karma was working in our favour with the rain stopping shortly before our clean, we managed to remain dry while cleaning 36kg of rubbish off the beach near Keast Park. An astounding 72 bottles and cans were picked up, with the endless amount of straws and small pieces of plastic it was hard to finish up after only an hour.
