You can participate by cleaning up the Yarrowee by collecting rubbish which is a trap for the city's litter. Participants will go into the draw to win a prize pack.
This project aims to improve the Yarrowee River by undertaking weed control, revegetation, improving facilities and engaging the community on river health issues.
