counting the days to the Big Spring Clean Up

Conservation Week 2010 starts next weekend.  As part of the "you in the environment" theme, we will be holding the Big Spring Clean Up on Saturday, October 23rd!  (Only six more sleeps!)

The Big Spring Clean Up aims to tidy up some of our local parks and bushland around Ellenbrook, The Vines, Henley Brook and Aveley.  Many community groups and associations are participating, with the support of City of Swan and Clean Up Australia. We hope to raise awareness in our local community about the impact of rubbish on the environment, and work together to make our local area a cleaner and greener place to live. 

All participants are invited to attend a sausage sizzle afterwards, where we will be giving out awards and prizes to celebrate our achievements.

Want to join in?  Just turn up to one of the three sites on the day at 8am, with protective clothing, a hat, gloves and bring a water bottle.  You can click on one of the three sites below to register on-line, or to find out more.

The Big Spring Clean Up is only one of the many events happening for Conservation Week 2010.  If you would like more information about the talks, walks, wildlife surveys and other events, please check out the Conservation Council of WA website.

If you live in the area, you may have seen a poster like this in newspapers or on noticeboards.
