Membership Matters: We Need YOU

Your voice truly makes a difference to the power of our EcoCentre's collective voice. We want our community voice to get louder!

Membership matters:

  • Our members strengthen our community voice.
  • They encourage funding partners to support our school and community education, our work protecting Port Phillip Bay, projects with the Youth Wildlife Ambassador, and other award-winning initiatives we run with over 10,000 diverse participants per year.

Last year was a very successful year for the EcoCentre: we were finalists in 7 and winners in 4 Victorian and National environmental awards, including our Youth Wildlife Ambassador Gio Fitzpatrick winning the prestigious United Nations World Environment Day Individual Award. Your membership contribution helps us continue these efforts, plus create healthy wildlife habitat, promote students' environmental leadership skills, do research and advocate for healthy waterways and much, much more. As always, we work closely with our local community to make this happen.

Basic Membership is $16.50 individual / $22 household. You are entitled to vote or stand for Committee (our upcoming AGM is Sunday October 23).

Types of Membership




The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukut Weelam 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.
