2020/21 Annual Report

We had 16,515 program participants. Over 68,200 digital users accessing EcoCentre resources, blogs and films. More than 14,000 volunteer hours, including planting over 6,100 coastal plants.

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including 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.
