LOS 3186EP Elsternwick Park

 
Love Our Street 3186EP Elsternwick Park.

Elsternwick Park is a significant open space on the banks of Elster Creek in the north of the City of Bayside, bordering Cities of Port Phillip and Glen Eira.

Following the closure of a former golf course in June 2018, the northern section of this park was set aside to be established as a nature reserve and flood mitigation basin. The park is a local biodiverse habitat zone.

Members of Elsternwick Park Love Our Street 3186 are keen to protect the park’s wildlife from litter hazards and to prevent litter entering Elster Creek, which leads directly into Elwood Canal and Port Phillip Bay.

This is a wonderful place to be involved in the Love Our Street/Beach patrol movement: we are often treated to sightings of gorgeous birds, including our emblematic Great Egret.

Fourteen volunteers did a great job to remove litter from the reserve today. We were delighted to see so many birds, but dismayed by the polystyrene so prevalent in the lake. We were able to show everyone our trophy for being nominated, along with LOS 3188 and Bayside BP groups, for the environmental organisation award, City of Bayside Australia Day. Another organisation took out the award, but it was fantastic to be nominated in our first year of action.

Two reports came in via Litter Stopper since our last group clean. Every little bit counts. One member cleaned up near where there had been a collision in parking bays. Lots of plastic fragments that had not been attended to by those involved. The other member cleaned up a bag of bottles and cans washed into the creek and lake by recent rains. Lots of polystyrene in the lake.

Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186 January 2020 by 3186EP@loveourstreet.com.au

In the face of catastrophic devastation in so many parts of Australia, the importance of caring for our creatures by keeping our own environment clean is underscored.Members will be doing other things as they are able.

Several new members joined in our January clean. Our volunteer time raised $300 in credits for the Ecocentre’s Living Waters projects to improve water in the catchment of Elster Creek.

We removed 16 kg of litter from the reserve: much of it soft plastic fragments and take-away food litter.

We hope the young wildlife are better able to thrive now.
