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.

Most Recent LOS 3186EP Group Activities

Elsternwick Park April 2020 individual cleans by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au
Though group cleans are suspended during COVID-19, members continue their efforts to protect our environment. Several reports have been logged using the Litter Stopper app. Recent rains mean litter has heavily impacted our beaches, so our work to remove this menace from the nature reserve means less flows down Elster Creek to the sea. Thank you to our members.
Love Our Street Community cleans suspended by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au
All Beach Patrol and Love Our Street cleans for every group are suspended until the Coronavirus COVID-19 threat eases and the government gives the all-clear for community activities to restart.
If you are able to get outdoors to do an individual clean, please ensure you use strong gloves and tongs or a reacher. Have soap and water where you can wash your hands at the end of the clean. Clean down all door and car door handles.
Please use our LItter Stopper app, free to download, and report what you collect to the closest group.
Stay safe and well everyone. Hope to see you when we can all be out together to keep our environment litter free.
Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186 Clean Up Australia Day by 3186EP@loveourstreet.com.au

Twelve volunteers did a great job to remove litter from the reserve today despite the blustery conditions. Fewer waterbirds about due to the low levels while Melbourne Water works to deal with the upstream blockage.

Great going everyone.
