The Friends of the Gippsland Lakes, Fishcare, Coastal Board and East Gippsland Shire Council have been invited to attend a Clean Up Australia Day event at the Silt Jetties on Sunday 5 March 2006. Click here for Clean Up Australia’s web page.
In addition to the great environmental outcomes this should be an energising inter-agency day with a recreational fishing (Fishcare) presence (given a lot of the rubbish is from anglers). It should also provide some excellent media coverage. There will be a BBQ and social afterwards. Stay tuned for more info or if you would like your group to be involved get in touch with Glen Forster, Coast Action/Coastcare Facilitator, Dept. Sustainability and Environment Ph: (03)5152 0439 Mob: 0408 357 343
