Beach Clean-Up (2022 Perth Youth Cup)
Meet at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club's front gate at 4pm on Thursday, 10 February 2022

New location: Meet at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club's front gate
Collecting debris between the Scotch College Boat Shed and Meads Restaurant

Come and help keep the Swan River clean on a Thursday afternoon in February!
The last four years' beach clean-ups have seen the collection of over 60 bags full of rubbish from the Swan River Sailing foreshore. Volunteers, competitors, staff, sponsors, and stakeholders all join forces to create a positive impact on the environmental assets being utilized during the week of the Youth Cup (supported by the Warren Jones Foundation).

This local sustainable initiative led Swan River Sailing to receive the 2021 Australia Saling Awards (Sustainability). Help us to make the SRS Beach Clean-up an even bigger event! Come down, lend a hand and help keep our rivers clean!

Supported by River Guardians, Keep Australia Beautiful, and Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.
