Friends of Rivers, Peel need your help to clean up our Murray and Serpentine Rivers on Sunday, the 7th of March, 8.30am until 12 noon as part of the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council’s (PHCC) Alcoa Foundation funded project, Healing Bilya: Restoring the Murray and Serpentine Rivers and the Clean Up the Peel campaign (https://mehg.org.au/clean-up-the-peel/).

If you are interested, please register to Colin Elton (coordinator of event) at colmagselton@westnet.com.au or 0407 426 513 and leave a message.

Please include which river clean-up site you will be taking part in, i.e. the Murray River or Serpentine River and if so, state that you are an Alcoa Volunteer. For example ‘NAME – Alcoa Volunteer’ then include which river (please note; if you are flexible on which site please let Colin know).

There will be a sausage sizzle and cold drink in the park at the end of Pelican Road, South Yunderup following the clean-up.
