Keep an eye on this space for more details about our next clean-up at Burnley Harbour.
Rowers, join forces to clean-up the Yarra River in this inaugural ‘Rowers Yarra River Clean-up’ event. Join us at either Hawthorn or Power House Rowing Clubs for a morning where we give back to our precious Yarra River.
The sessions will kick off with brief presentations by Yarra Riverkeeper representatives (9:00 – 9:30am). We’ll then get our hands dirty along the banks of the Yarra (9:30-11:30). At Power House you’ll also have the opportunity to hop on a kayak, generously provided by Sea Kayak Australia (first come – first served), and clean the reed beds around Herring Island. The clean-ups will be followed by morning tea and a sausage sizzle, and drinks will be available at bar prices.
Bags, litter grabbers and some gloves will be provided on the day. Please BYO water bottle and gloves if you have them.
We look forward to seeing you there!
