Melbourne, May 5th and 2 other dates
The Point Cook Coastal Park and Cheetham Wetlands are located 20km southwest of Melbourne, and feature salt marshes, lagoons from Skeleton Creek, intertidal sand banks and a Marine Sanctuary.
The park ranks among the top places in the world for migratory wading birds.
The Point Cook Marine Sanctuary lies just offshore from the park and covers nearly 300 hectares. It was declared a sanctuary in 2004 to protect the marine ecosystems of the basalt reef and is relatively unspoilt being one of the last intact reef environments in Port Phillip Bay.
Protecting the habitat values on the land feeds into the marine sanctuary as it reduces sediment runoff and pollution entering the bay. Join us to assist with tasks such as weed management and litter collection to protect and preserve this valuable area of Melbourne.
Please ensure appropriate clothing is worn for long periods outdoors - this includes sturdy footwear, long pants and long sleeved shirt. Please bring your own lunch and bottle of water.

You will also have the opportunity to collect native seeds from the Greenwich Reserve area with a focus on revegetation of mangroves to help prevent further erosion in various areas in Hobsons Bay. These tasks will also help to provide suitable vegetation and habitat for several species of native birds found in the area.
The site location will vary each week in the Altona and Willamstown areas.
