The Elsternwick Park Association is moving into a much more active phase when it comes to activities on site. When the bulldozers move out we will be moving in. With COVID restrictions easing we look forward to welcoming more of our wonderful volunteers back on site to assist with all of our many activities including plant propagation and planting, bird and wildlife surveys & litter collection. As our activities increase so does our need for funds to support the association. Your donation to the epa will go towards much needed equipment and tools to support our volunteers and the epa's ever increasing range of activities on site.
We thankyou for your donation.
Who are we?
The Elsternwick Park Association is a community group with a vision to create a beautifully designed and maintained wetland park with an environmental focus, in the Elsternwick Park Nature Reserve.
We have five key priorities for the nature reserve:
Environment-we are keen to see the reserve become a thriving habitat for wildlife, including threatened and endangered species.
Aesthetics and public amenity -a beautiful nature reserve will be a treasure for residents and visitors alike. We want to see the reserve designed and maintained so that people are able to appreciate, interact with, nurture and enjoy the reserve.
Flood mitigation-many of our members are prone to flooding from Elster Creek, We are working to maximise opportunities for flood mitigation both in the reserve and more generally, in Elsternwick Park and from a whole of catchment perspective.
Water Quality -a well-designed active, water management and wetland system will be able to improve water quality, not only onsite but as it enters the bay.
Community involvement-we are keen to involve and engage the community in valuing and interacting with the reserve. This includes volunteering, advocacy, education and research.
