Giving Gold Coast locals the opportunity to help care for their coastal environment
BeachCare is a coastal community engagement initiative facilitated by Griffith Centre for Coastal Management in partnership with the City of Gold Coast.
The program provides an opportunity for community members to help care for their local coastal environments through the planting of native dune species, weed removal and litter collection and auditing.
The BeachCare program works to conserve the city’s biodiversity and protect coastal vegetation on public land. More importantly, the program empowers communities with skills, experience and information. This supports locals to respond independently and create sustainable community values for the coast through increasing awareness and caring for our Gold Coast dunes and their fragile ecosystem.
We welcome new volunteers who wish to join the many who dedicate time and energy to help care for our treasured beach assets. If you are attending a BeachCare activity, please bring a bottle of water and wear enclosed shoes plus sun-smart clothing.
