This is a family friendly event, there is plenty to do and opportunities for all ages and abilities to help out on shore as well as in the water (children under the age of 14 need to be accompanied by an adult).  Please bring appropriate gear for working in and around the river (gloves, shoes that tolerate water & swimwear). 

There are opportunities for people who don't wish to get wet: they can walk the banks and pick up garbage which would otherwise wash into the River when the rains come.  There are also plenty of opportunities for people to get into the water.  If you plan to work in the River please bring your own flotation devices, snorkel and mask etc.

Everyone, please remember your sun screen and hat!

Bring us your bottles and cans !!

That's right!  A chance to create a little order in your life and support a good cause.  Proceeds from your recyclable drink containers will go toward supporting the River Cleanup and a portion will go towards the Gerald Thom Environmental Studies Bursary.
