We're the "eyes and ears" of the river, streams and creeks and have been for years now.  We're out in the sun, wind and rain, scooping up rubbish from near and very far - plastics, bottles, fishing line and anything else that finds its way there - the Coast Guard skip bin keeps a tally.  We check the water quality around the lower catchment, A- they said last year and the year before that, best around.
