20 Nov 2017 – Rubbish clean-up in roadside vegetation

Three or so times a year, the club has committed to cleaning up the rubbish that has accumulated in a high quality native woodland.  This is located along a ~2km signposted section of the Pyrenees Hwy roadside reserve to the west of Castlemaine (i.e., on the road to Newstead; near the golf course).  The next Clean-up will be on Monday 20th November, and again we are seeking members and other interested volunteers to join the effort.  You might even get to hear or see a Scarlet Honeyeater!

If you are interested in helping out, meet at the corner of Pyrenees Hwy and Willy Milly Road (next to Tait Decorative Iron) at 9am on Monday 20 Nov.  Wear sturdy footwear and bring gloves. Garbage bags and reflective vests will be provided.  It is usually all finished by 11am.

Please Note: Rules prohibit anyone under 16 years from working on the roadside.
Thanks to Geoff and Geraldine Harris for coordinating this regular activity.

  1. It’s a sad fact that unacceptable litter blights our landscapes indicating the laziness of many who simply display disrespect for our preserving the aesthetic qualities of unique environment. Thumps up to the clean up volunteers who follow the litter trails of those who simply ‘don’t care..’ Sorry I can’t make it…GH
