An example of the type of rubbish picked up at the recent Lake cleanup

On Sunday the 23 October, twenty nine people signed up to help clean up Lake Tuggeranong for our annual Spring cleanup.  It was great to see that the lake itself did not have as much rubbish around it as has been seen in the past.  Maybe this is because more people are aware and not throwing rubbish around, or, maybe more locals are being responsible and picking up rubbish or, maybe it is just because the recent rains flushed a lot of the rubbish down stream.  What ever the reason, with people walking around the lake, the Tuggeranong Rowing Club in boats collecting rubbish the lake it is at the moment reasonably clean.  Thanks to the Tuggeranong Lake Carers for organising the event, Southern ACT Catchment groups for the loan of equipment and Bev and Max from the TCC for organising the BBQ.
