You can check out the great video of the event here
We are very excited to announce that Clean Ocean Foundation’s new patron, acclaimed Australian Children’s author, Alison Lester has opened our Litter Art Exhibition.
Born in Foster, Alison has had a lifelong love affair with the beach which started through her holidays spent at Walkerville South, where she drew inspiration for her much loved book “The Magic Beach”.
The exhibition displays pieces by prominent local artists and as work contributed by several primary schools from the Bass Coast and South Gippsland region all related to the problem of litter that pollutes the ocean and threatens marine wildlife.
If you missed the exhibition, it will also be on display at the Inverloch Community Hub over January
Power Clean #3 - Inverloch 27 Oct 2013
See Video Here
Warm, sunny conditions were perfect for the Clean Ocean Power Clean team to collected all this rubbish along the Inverloch foreshore in just one hour! The Power Cleans, are part of Operation Sea Eagle and ongoing project to keep an “Eagle Eye” on pollution along the Bass Coast
Along with all beach side rubbish the Sea Eagle team also found some household rubbish dumped on the foreshore. On investigation the Sea Eagle team discovered some very strong evidence as to who was responsible and have handed this on to the Bass Coast Shire Council for further investigation and probable prosecution.
A big thank you to everyone who turned out to donate an hour of their weekend time to help this morning, including local Cr. Jordan Crugnale!
On Saturday night 15 June at Inverloch, Clean Ocean Foundation and Bass Coast Boardriders held their Winter Rock fundraiser featuring Company Exposed. All proceeds will go to Operation Sea Eagle that monitors the marine environment along Bass Coast.
Congratulations to all who had fun cleaning up the beach in our Power Clean Up. We got the job done even with some horsing around!
There'll be more 1 hour Power Clean Ups soon.......
