Waves of Change in Rockdale

CVA is seeking your help to take action for Ocean, Rivers and Wetlands! Get ready to roll up your sleeves, lend a hand to nature and enhance your well-being by joining this meaningful initiative that creates a true impact.

Participate in hands-on bush regeneration, a crucial step towards protecting the endangered species present within our focus area: The Rockdale Wetlands Corridor, home to 7 endangered ecological communities and 28 threatened/migratory fauna species.

  • Help us fight plastic pollution and stop litter at the source by cleaning up these precious ecosystems whilst collecting crucial data for the CSIRO
  • Forge connections with like-minded individuals eager to make a positive impact
  • Revel in a day surrounded by the tranquility of nature, right in the heart of our city. 🌿🌊

The health of our wetlands affects the state of our rivers and in turn the world’s ocean, so let’s work together to safeguard these vital ecosystems!🌊🌿

 

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to become a hero!

Can’t attend events on the ground?

We know that it’s not always easy to find time to volunteer with us, so we’ve created ways for people to take action anywhere, anytime. Everyone can take part and make a contribution to ocean, wetlands and rivers!

Take action from home with our SeaToSource Plastic Waste Challenge (coming February 2024) available on our CVA Community app.
