Alive Outside

Come and be actively involved wildlife watching and monitoring as the Alive Outside sessions walk, cycle and snorkel their way around the beaches, foreshore and reserves within the City of Port Phillip. 

 

Help protect our local wildlife by making nest boxes, weeding and growing and planting native plants.

 

 

 

The Alive Outside sessions are available to all 12 – 25 year olds  who live, work and play in the City of Port Phillip. The Alive Outside program provides organised sessions (where you register and turn up) or sessions specifically for a group (schools, youth groups, guides or scouts).
