Welcome to Port Phillip EcoCentre

The EcoCentre is a vibrant community hub, reconnecting people to the natural world and building relationships to inspire, educate and demonstrate.



Sustainable Living Festival/EcoCentre event

Event date: 
 Tuesday, 9 February 2016
Event location: 
 Middle Park Beach

Find out which molluscs call Port Phillip Bay home. Measure coastal erosion using a simple methodology devised by the Port Phillip Baykeeper.

In general, molluscs are a misunderstood and poorly recognised valuable part of the Port Phillip Bay food chain. These simple citizen science marine-based land activities will teach participants to recognise a variety of live molluscs. Have you noticed that the coastline is changing? Allow the Port Phillip Baykeeper share his methodology for monitoring sand movement at a beach foreshore. We hope that it will educate people to take a closer interest in the changing marine environment.

Time: 6pm - 7:30pm

Location: Kerford Road Pier, Beaconsfield Parade, Middle Park

Online bookings only at: http://www.trybooking.com/KFMV

This is an official Sustainable Living Festival event.



The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukit Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and elder members of our multicultural community.

We proudly work in partnership with Arweet Carolyn Briggs and the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
