Amongst the crowd of 45 volunteers for the day were some of the students of Deception Bay High School and their efforts and enthusiasm were greatly appreciated. The rubbish pick up was different to other days, with far less volume, but a lot of take way rubbish including drink containers and food wrappers. Picking up rubbish was difficult with heavy weed growth and undergrowth due to the heavy rain received over the past few weeks.
Over 30 bags of rubbish were collected from the site. A number of volunteers enjoyed walking the eco-path walkway and the opportunity of seeing one of the resident Ospreys feeding on a recently caught whiting.
The rubbish may not as been as extensive as some of the areas, but being so close to Hays Inlet, it was important to collect as much as possible. The next stop for the rubbish in this area is Moreton Bay. Overall, a very successful day and a big thank you to the people who made the effort last Sunday morning!
