Don’t miss your chance to take part in our annual Business Clean Up Day Challenge, part of the Clean Up Australia Day initiative. On Tuesday, 28 February, organisations around Australia will take part in the Clean Up Challenge at key locations selected and managed by Conservation Volunteers Australia.
Teams will be challenged to clean up as much rubbish as they can in a two hour period, competing against each other to see who will be crowned the champion. There’s an opportunity to gain extra points for finding mysterious, unusual or rare items.
Now is your last chance to gather your workmates together and register your team for our Business Clean Up Day Challenge! Why not invite other divisions in your workplace, challenge your interstate branches or extend the invitation to your customers? You may enter as many teams as you like.
We will provide everything you need including a BBQ lunch.
Show us how well you can clean up Australia!
Registrations close Tuesday 14 February 2017.
Cost: $2,000 + GST per team of up to 10 volunteers*
Business Clean Up Day Challenge sites around Australia
We’ve found priority sites across Australia where you and your team can help clean up:
Adelaide – Semaphore Dunes
Semaphore Dunes play a valuable role along the Adelaide foreshore. The dunes host significant plant species and communities in the remnant vegetation and are home to numerous reptiles and birds. The dunes are under threat from further degradation and as such activities are underway to enhance the natural biodiversity of this fragile coastal environment.
Brisbane – Oxley Creek
The Fort Bushland Reserve in Oxley is a remnant of dry rainforest vegetation in Brisbane’s Oxley Creek catchment. It is a significant area for plant species and wildlife habitat, and forms part of an environmental corridor in the Oxley area. The reserve has been part of an ongoing project for the last decade to restore a functioning ecosystem.
Melbourne – Westgate Park
Westgate Park is located along the eastern banks of the Yarra River and offers spectacular views to the mouth of the Yarra and the city skyline. It is an example of how wasteland can become a flourishing ecological and recreational wetland.
Perth – Thomas Oval Bushland
Thomas Oval Bushland backs on to the Kwinana Buffer area within the City of Kwinana and contains remnant Tuart Woodland with limestone heathland communities. These bushland communities are becoming scarce in the Perth metropolitan area due to urbanisation and uncontrolled access. This area is also home to a variety of bird species including resident Whistling Kites.
Sydney – Sydney Olympic Park
Sydney Olympic Park is a premier destination for sporting, entertainment and cultural activities and one of Australia’s largest urban parklands. Given the parks location along the Parramatta River and other creeks a lot of debris is washed into this area allowing us to clean it up and reduce pollution of valuable waterways and wetlands.
* Please note that it is cyclone season at this time of the year and the locations in Queensland may be faced withinclement weather. If this occurs, we may have to cancel or postpone the challenge at short notice. Every effort will be made to reschedule, but if you are unable to attend, a refund will be provided.
