It’s often been described as one of the most polluted rivers in Australia…Join the the Mudcrabs rid the Cooks River of a whole lot of rubbish this Clean Up Australia Day!

Left in the river, rubbish is devastating to the wildlife and ecosystems of the Cooks River.

What to bring:

  • Gumboots or old shoes (and clothes) that can get dirty are highly recommended as it can get very muddy if you’re collecting in the mangroves!
  • Please wear “non-fluffy”/”non-sticky” clothing. This will prevent plant seeds sticking to you so we don’t spread weeds
  • Water bottle
  • Wear a hat and sunscreen

We will provide litter pickers, gloves and rubbish bags.

All ages welcome. Children must be accompanied by a guardian over the age of 18.

When: Sunday 1 March Clean Up Australia Day

Time: 8am – 10am

Where: Meet at the park at the end of Close Street, Canterbury. Limited street parking available in Close Street. More street parking available in nearby surrounding streets. A few minutes walking distance (300 metres) from Canterbury Station.
