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.

Time: 8am – 10am
