3196Chelsea – BeachPatrol

Local volunteers creating community awareness on plastic in the bay



New Leader sought for our Chelsea BeachPatrol group. Our current leader has to step down due other commitments. The position involves 3-4 hours a month, which includes 1 hour of beach cleaning with the group, counting some of the litter and submitting it on the Litterstopper app, posting next clean on FB page, and sending out two emails to the group announcing the next clean date and thanking for participation in  recent clean.  All training provided.

Being a group leader is a great way to meet many local people and become a community leader along the way. If interested please send email to admin@beachpatrol.com.au. Thank you.

Chelsea Beach Patrol cares for the beautiful stretch of Port Philip coastline from Edithvale to Patterson River. This part of the Longbeach coastline is known for its crystal clear waters, warm safe shallows and vast stretch of soft white sand. This area attracts many visitors all year round, who are captivated by our stunning beach, whether it is bathed in gorgeous sunshine or windswept on a stormy day.

While areas of the beach are groomed by machine, some litter remains. Chelsea Beach Patrol aims to take the regular beach grooming a step further by gathering our team of volunteers once a month to make sure the beach is looking beautiful for all members of the public to enjoy. We also aim to reduce the impact of human activity on the natural flora and fauna of the Chelsea foreshore and Port Philip Bay.
