Clean Up Australia Day 3 March 2019

WB1903frontpageA big thank you to the 32 volunteers who came to the Clean Up Cape Paterson day on March 3rd.  This was part of Clean Up Australia which supports and encourages local communities, schools and businesses to undertake a clean up event.  5 bags of rubbish and 6 bags of recycling were collected.  This compares with 8 bags of rubbish and 10 of recycling in 2018 and 10 bags of each in 2017.

Click on the title to read more and look at the photos.  


This was our fourth-in-a-row Clean Up Australia working bee and with such a good turnout we could easily cover the main township public areas, foreshore reserves and beaches.  

We followed up the clean up with a BBQ at Birt Park thanks to Leone.

CPRRA is planning to hold a clean up day every year on the national Clean Up Australia day.  We hope to see you there next year!

See below for photos from the mornings activity.

    Our Hoodies

    Hooded PloversWe have two valuable Hooded Plover breeding sites at Undertow Bay and 2nd Surf Beach.  Hoodies are endangered species with breeding success currently very low.  To protect them you must:

      - Read and follow signage

      - Only observe them from a distance of 80-100m

      - Keep your dog on a lead and well away from the birds.
