About this event
On a beach that emerged from the bay within our lifetime, join the Port Phillip EcoCentre Baykeeper and educators to explore the cultural and natural history of urban coastlines, pioneer plants, urban biodiversity and community-government collaborations.
How do healthy coasts contribute to healthy climates, and the ever-changing balance between land and water, built and wild spaces, past, present and future?

For over 20 years it has provided a base for affiliate groups involved in activities that promote environmental sustainability and community action.
