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 March Beach clean by 3198@beachpatrol.com.au
Sunday March 26th was a wonderfully sunny morning for a stroll along Seaford beach.
With the fantastic help of 25 people (large and small) we managed to remove thousands of tiny plastics, cigarette butts and general trash from the beach and sand dunes.
Mostly small items around this area.
3198 Seaford February Beach clean by 3198@beachpatrol.com.au
The sun was beaming and water glistening on Sunday the 26th of February in Seaford.
We were pleased to see the beach looking relatively clean (but when you looking closely all those pesky micro plastics appear).

Great to see the regulars still attending and a few new faces added to the mix.
3198 January 2017 clean up by 3198@beachpatrol.com.au
Thank you team for joining in the first 3198 Beach Patrol Clean of 2017. It's so nice getting to know the people that live around you while doing great work for our planet.

Last Sunday the 15th of January this amazing crew removed 19kg of litter off the beach, including 30 bottles and cans, we really need the container deposit scheme to come in and hopefully encourage people to dispose of their waste better! Many members commented on the obscene amount of cigarette butts on the beach. Thank you to all for your relentless work both at our events and through the changes that many are making at home, we would all love to live in a world where what we do isn't necessary

Our next 2017 clean is
Sunday February 26th, meeting 10-11am at Keast Park
