On Saturday 18th March 2023, 37 volunteers turned out in perfect weather for our annual beach clean. This is the Friends of the Prom’s contribution to the CleanUp Australia campaign.
After the briefings given by park ranger Lucy and our president Olga, we split into 5 groups, travelling by car to our designated beaches. After several hours collecting rubbish from beaches, we met back at Stockyard campsite to sort and classify the rubbish, record it and weigh the total.
Oddly enough, the total amount of rubbish collected was significantly less than expected. expert.
