Portland Coastal Cliffs Inc.

The Portland Coastal Cliffs Inc. was formed in 2005 with the vision "to restore the Portland Cliffs through community involvement, action and support." 

Monthly working bees were run with numerous attendees and excellent results. Activities ranged from planting indigenous plants to eradication of weeds and collecting rubbish, finishing with a cuppa and a chat. Over the past 14 years habitats have been created, encouraging wildlife, especially birds. The grasses, shrubs and trees are now reaching maturity and enhancing the biodiversity of Portland's coastline.

The groups main focus now is on the main beach and base of the cliffs. There is many woody weed work and garden escapees that need managing as well as new areas that can be planted.

The group is working to secure funding and implement a variety of community and contractor works over the next 12 months.
