3207 Beach Patrol Beach Clean



3207 Beach Patrol
Next Group Beach Clean
 


Saturday 27 October
Port Melbourne Life Saving Club
Meet at Lagoon Pier at 9 am
 
See you there!

Greetings fellow beach patrollers!
A little Spring reward is attached.  A Beacon Cove mosaic made from plant material over the weekend at Janet's farewell.

Last Saturday Tom reports did his one hour beach clean at Upper Yarra. What a beautiful place - in amongst the forests and seeing the Yarra River "emerge" from the Upper Yarra Reservoir (which is a source of our beaut drinking water.)

Long way from the beach? Yup. About 100 kms.

But all things are connected. It appears that much of our beach litter actually derives from accidental litter in the Yarra River - as the flotsam (mostly plastic) moves downstream into Hobsons Bay - where it is blown on to the Port Beaches by the sou westerly winds.

so picking up litter way upstream did my little bit for the day.

Our next Group Clean is 9am Saturday 27 October

Not at Upper Yarra - but locally on the Port Melb Life saving club (where the Sicilian kiosk is) beach.   Meet at the Lagoon Pier at 9 am.

Please mark your diaries and join in the camaraderie as we make our mark to create a sparkling beach we can all be proud of.

See you there.  Coffee at that Kiosk again afterwards.

cheers
the BP Team
