Warnambool Clean Up (incl. Paddle Against Plastic)

Sat, 25/05/2019 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

The Warnambool Clean Up is a major event to clean up Warnambool. Local Groups will be cleaning different sites all across the region. Stay tuned for more locations as we develop this event. Our mission is to clean as much of the river surrounds of Warnambool as possible and hence we are seeking paddlers and walkers to come and lend a hand for a few hours.

The event incorporates a Paddle Against Plastic so bring your Kayak, SUP or Canoe and help us clean up. If you don't have a craft you can hire one of ours for a very small fee. To pre-register and book a craft, simply choose the ticket that refers to what you need and we will see you on the day. Ocean Crusaders will also provide our new rescue vessel Sweeper on the day to support paddlers and swap bags of rubbish out.

Don't have a paddle craft, then never fear, several local groups will be organising separate clean up sites. More details to come shortly on these locations.

This is a fun family event and our team will conduct an audit on the debris on the day to enter data into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative Database so if you don't want to get out on the water you can certainly help with that. We will finish off with a BBQ and a few cold refreshments.

Each of the groups involved will also have a display showing you what they do in the local environment and hence you have an opportunity to sign up with them for ongoing programs on the river and surrounds.

The event will be hosted at the park adjacent to the Ski Club on Simpson St. Look for the banners.
