Thanks to Beth, Ian and Scott for leading the beach clean on 6 April whilst I was away. Beth's comments from the day:

It was a lovely, relaxing day on the beach, great to have some new joiners! There were 18 volunteers that helped to clean up the beach at Black Rock on the day, collecting 15 bags of rubbish in total, roughly 30 Kg of litter. Well done and thanks everyone for your hard work!

Very successful clean up in the new Riverwalk Estate. 16 volunteers (many children) managed to collect an enormous 263kgs of litter from this site that when it rain, feeds into the Werribee River. The figures are a bit alarming and include 68kgs of plastic, 45kgs of cardboard, 30kg of styrofoam, and only 7.5kg of food type containers, with only 20 bottles and cans. This is rubbish is clearly from the building of new housing estates, even though this site was cleaned around Christmas by the developers. Thanks WRivA Science Officer for getting us down to this location.
