Earthcare St Kilda is a non-profit volunteer group that works in partnership with local government, state government bodies and specialists to improve the natural resources of the City of Port Phillip and Elster Creek.
We do what we can, where we are
Earthcare volunteers work on a number of practical marine and terrestrial projects aimed at protecting the local natural environment, as well as increasing the diversity and extent of indigenous flora and fauna.
Earthcare St Kilda volunteers also facilitate opportunities for local residents to experience and learn more about the wide array of plants and animals with which we share our lives, and to join in projects which are designed to protect and improve the local environment.
