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.

3198 Seaford May Clean by 3198@beachpatrol.com.au
Thank you to all that attended on Sunday, with all the wind and crazy weather it's even more important that we brave the elements and get out there with so much extra debris and rubbish getting washed up. Lucky for us the weather gods shined down and we had a beautiful morning.

The team collected over 21kg of rubbish off Seaford beach, most of the items were light plastic items such as bags and straws that had been washed up in the wild seas we have had lately.

It was great to make some new friends and see some old ones again.

With our one year 3198 BP anniversary coming up if anyone has any great celebration ideas be sure to send them our way.

Check out the beautiful blue skies and the gorgeous 3198 BP volunteer group! Another fabulous meet up, we cleaned approx 8kg of litter off the beach, a bizillion (yep this is an accurate measurement) of nurdles are gone and we all had a nice morning enjoying the sunshine.

Thank you to all that attended, we look forward to seeing you at the next clean on Sunday May 15th at Seaford Pier.

Don't forget to bring your reusable bags and coffee cup for a wander around the farmers market afterwards.
3198 Feb clean by 3198@beachpatrol.com.au
Thank you to everyone for coming to our clean this morning! What a great way to start a Sunday with beautiful people on our gorgeous beach. With 12 Volunteers we collected 4.5kg of rubbish, a big difference from our 35kg last month. Interesting to note that the area we were cleaning today had bins, maybe that helps to explain the difference in rubbish collected. It was also very apparent that the half of the beach with bins had significantly less rubbish than the area of beach with bins. Another large amout of cigarette butts collected and the majority of rubbish was small pieces of plastic
