Conservation Volunteers Australia – Brisbane Litter Clean-Up
8 June, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm AEST
We welcome the community to join us on World Oceans Day to celebrate the environment from the wetlands to the oceans and learn about what we, as individuals can do to help these special environments.
First, we will be hosting a free condensed screening of the film ‘A Plastic Ocean’.
Secondly, we will hear from a couple of special guest speakers, who will touch on the plastic issue.
This will be followed by a free catered lunch.
After lunch, we’ll hop on over to the Oxbow Wetlands (8 min drive) to do a litter clean-up, recording what we find on the Litter Stopper app!
We would like to thank our local project partners Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee (B4C) to allow us to host this exciting event.
A lift can be accommodated from B4C to the Oxbow Wetlands if you don’t have any form of transport – please let Ellen know via firstname.lastname@example.org. Spots are limited, so get in quickly!
