NEXT weekend the Canning Regional Park volunteers will be picking up rubbish around the waterways as part of their 20-year commitment to Keep Australia Beautiful (KAB).

With a vision for a litter free and sustainable Australia, KAB runs annually across the country as a means of litter prevention.

Canning Regional Park Volunteers founding member Richard Stone said the event was a huge success in the region and in 2017 and he has put a call out to the community to participate this year.

“As a group we have conducted Clean up Australia Day over the past 20-plus years,” he said.

“Last year’s event was a huge success with over 100 willing workers cleaning up their local regional park.”

Mr Stone extended an invitation to the wider community to don closed in shoes, a broad brimmed hat, sunscreen and gloves this Sunday March 5 from 8:30am to help keep the park pristine.

Meet at the corner of Duff and Adenia Road, Riverton. Morning tea will be supplied.
