CHILDREN from the Kids Nature Club joined forces to clean up Lake Gwelup Reserve and filled five bin bags for Clean Up Australia Day.
Organiser Kirstie Pupazzoni said 24 volunteers came to clean up on March 5.
Ms Pupazzoni said there was a large amount of rubbish in the area due to an ongoing development.
“We spent an hour on the south side of Lake Gwelup Reserve, where due to recent building developments there was quite a bit of rubbish,” she said.
“Volunteers filled five big bags, mostly with very small pieces of plastic and foam that would have otherwise probably ended up in the lake.”
She said volunteering was a positive experience for the children in the group.
“Children can see that just because you didn’t cause a problem doesn’t mean you can’t jump in and help fix it,” she said.
