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.

Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186 - a safer Nature Reserve for our creatures by 3186EP@loveourstreet.com.au

Seventeen volunteers ignored the looming clouds and removed 27 Kg of litter from the reserve today. Drink containers were clustered under a clump of trees, perhaps a party after dark. With young birds of all sorts now fledging and learning to fend for themselves, we’re glad we cleared these threats.

The Nature Reserve seems a lot cleaner now. Since launching in May, the group and individual members at other times have removed 100 kg of litter from the Park. This means all our special creatures are much safer from entanglement and from ingesting plastic or other harmful items. Creatures downstream in the Canal and Port Phillip Bay benefit too.

Great going everyone.
