Along the Pyrenees Hwy between Castlemaine and Newstead, you will have noticed some large roadsigns promoting a particular section maintained by the Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club. This is wonderful publicity for the club, and covers a very nice patch of roadside bushland. However, it does also mean that the club is responsible for keeping the rubbish levels down to a low level.
Approximately 3 times per year, club members Geoff and Geraldine Harris organise a roadside clean-up, the first of which is this Saturday 20 February from 9am. If you have 1-2 hours to spare to help out, it would be greatly appreciated (non-members are also welcome, but all participants must be no younger than 16 years of age). Garbage bags and reflective vests are provided.
Where: Meet at the corner of Pyrenees Hwy and Golf Links Rd, near Tait Decorative Ironworks store.
When: Sat 20 Feb, from 9am
You need to bring: Sturdy footwear. Gloves.
