Clean our Rivers 2016 - success

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the inaugural #cleanourrivers event. So many of you went out and cleaned up your favorutie riverside spot and sent in your photos to show us the difference.

A heap of rubbish was collected over the week which included the usual items such as plastic bags, plastic bottles and fishing waste but there were a few odd items too such as an Annie CPR doll, lot's of mens underwear, a safe and lot's of chairs. 

Check out the River Guardians Facebook page for more photos and see the video of Parks and Visitor Services staff cleaning the South Perth foreshore.
