Friends of Flinders Coastline

 

An informal and friendly group   ( Friends of Flinders Coastline Inc)

 

Our noble president on his hands and knees, under the direction of our beloved Gladys, assists atFriends at a Planting - October 2009.  Working Bees are held on the second and fourth Friday of each month from 9 - 11am, followed by a well-earned coffee.

 

The Friends Group was formed in 2004 by local residents concerned by the poor state of the coastal vegetation.  Grants from the Federal Government, Parks Victoria, and Melbourne Water have financed our endeavours.  Parks Victoria and the Mornington Peninsula Shire work closely with us and provide expertise.


Our ongoing work is carried out on either side of the beach access path at Cove Lane, on the ocean beach coastline from West Head to Cyril's Headland and sites along the Golf Course road.


Our aims are:


*  to protect and maintain the remnant indigenous vegetation


*  to encourage re-generation through weed management and to rehabilitate degraded areas through weed control and replanting with indigenous stock grown for us by local nurseries.


We are an informal and friendly group.  Everyone is welcome to join us in making a difference to our coastal environment.
