Keep Armstrong Creek Beautiful

 

Armstrong Creek wetland is a unique and beautiful waterway system which runs right through the heart of Warralily.

To maintain our beautiful parklands, the Armstrong Creek Community Group have committed to two clean up days a year. In March this year the children and adults came together to clean up Charlemont Conservation reserve and in October we invite you to join us to participate in Cleaning Up Armstrong Creek.

Did you know that Armstrong Creek was originally a very important Aboriginal waterway & meeting place?
As a community we have a responsibility to contribute to keeping our environment and surroundings clean and litter free for everyone to enjoy.
