Get involved: Help clean our rivers

2008-09-08 00:00

Make a difference on River Care Day, September 20, by helping to clear rubbish from water courses in the city and surrounds.

Residents of Pietermaritzburg, Hilton and Howick are urged to join forces with the Duzi-uMgeni Conservation Trust (Duct) and Christian nature conservation organisation, A Rocha, (supported by Hulamin and The Witness).

‘While one volunteer’s efforts will not make an appreciable difference, 1 000 volunteers certainly will make a difference,’ says Duct chairman Dave Still.

Any individual or group who would like to get involved should e-mail or call Andrew at 082 603 4098 or John at 083 651 3775 for details. Most groups work for two or three hours and timing is flexible.
