Pave the Way, is a community Clean-Up Event that has been running since 2014. Inspired by the award-winning photographer David Rennie, the event is designed to clean up the Coodanup Foreshore of litter, and pave the way for migratory shorebirds which arrive on the shorelines of the Peel-Yalgorup System at this time of year.
Participants will clean up the Coodanup foreshore and using citizen science techniques perform an audit of the rubbish collected. The data collected will later be entered into Tangaroa Blue’s Australian Marine Debris Database. The data helps us understand the level of litter contamination of a site, the main offending items of the litter and empowers the community to identify effective means to reduce the litter.
Gloves and bags will be provided. Please ensure you bring along your:
- Reusable water bottle
- Sturdy walking shoes
A lunch token will be provided to all participants, for the food van of their choice.
