Melbourne Southeast Team - Clean Up Australia Day

Sunday, March 03, 2019 at 10:00 AM · 7 rsvps
Hawthorn

This year, local Wilderness Society group Southeast Melbourne are getting amongst it on Clean Up Australia Day!

Come out and hang with us as we collect litter, have conversations about solutions, and end with a picnic lunch. Triple whammy, love it.

When: 10am - 12 noon on Sunday 3 March
Where: Hawthorn - meet at Glenferrie Station
What: Community clean up of our local area, followed by a picnic

The appeal of Clean Up the World has demonstrated that this simple Australian idea has universal appeal and the health of the environment is of concern to people and communities worldwide.

Under the banner of Clean Up the World people across the planet are willing to do something themselves to help protect and care for their environment.

Over the past three decades  Clean Up Australia has evolved into an organisation that works with the community, government and business to provide practical solutions to help us all live more sustainably every day of the year.

Today the focus is as much on preventing rubbish entering our environment as it is removing what has already accumulated, with issues based campaigns making every day a Clean Up Day.

All welcome - kayaks, sups, surfboards, boogie boards, flippers - really anything that floats!

The Great Australian Bight is under threat from seismic testing and deep sea oil drilling. Our climate, our sea creatures, our way of life are all too precious to loose.
