Swan Bay Environment Association

What We Do:

The Swan Bay Environment Association recognises the importance of Swan Bay as a wetland of national and international importance and is actively working to ensure the area remains in a natural and unspoilt state. The Association encourages passive recreational and educational use of the Bay.

It is actively involved in a unique network with other volunteer groups and agencies whose broader role is to protect Swan Bay through community education and facilitation of on-ground works on both private and public lands within the Swan Bay catchment – the Bellarine Catchment Network (formerly, the Swan Bay Integrated Catchment Management Committee). Some activities include promoting the appropriate use of Swan Bay; propagation of indigenous plants; planting indigenous plants around the foreshore; preparing submissions relating to the protection of Swan Bay; collecting resources for a library on Swan Bay at the Marine Discovery Centre; and responding to any issues which affect Swan Bay and its catchment area. This includes ensuring any development of adjacent areas is consistent with the values of the Bay. They also produce a quarterly newsletter, hold committee meetings once a month and have regular working bees.
