    Weekly gentle exercise and walk

    We have a wonderful trainer who is volunteering his time to lead members in a gentle exercise program before walking around the Blackburn Lake area. 

    Not only will it keep members fit ahead of campaign battles but there'll be Greens t-shirts striding out in the park once a week whilst also raising funds for Whitehorse Greens. 

    (N.B. Paperwork will need to be filled out beforehand, and we'll have some -shirts available on the day)

    Plastic Free Yarra

    Join the Plastic Free Sea Day of Action to clean up the Yarra in Eastern Metropolitan

    Are you ready to take action to reduce plastic pollution?

    Every Victorian wants our beautiful natural rivers, oceans and waterways to be clean and healthy. The Yarra River is home to many incredible species (like the platypus!) and we need to keep it that way.

    Unfortunately, plastic infests the Yarra, clogging it with pollution and damaging the ecosystem with a toxic product that never goes away.

    We can each do our part to reduce plastic pollution - let's start with the Yarra River and the beautiful creeks around Eastern Metro on July 29!

    Your Greens MPs are working hard to ban plastic bags and microbeads, with Nina Springle MLC set to introduce a private members bill into the Victorian Parliament. You can read more about the Bill and issue here.

    In the meantime, let's spend some time down by the Yarra to help keep it plastic free during #PlasticFreeJuly.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

    ** Please RSVP now and we'll contact you closer to the day with your nearest #CleanUp location **

    Gardiners Creek Reserve in Burwood, Australia

    Gardiners Creek Walk

    Gary Presland will be our guide for the Gardiners Creek Walk hosted by the Whitehorse Greens.

    The walk will begin and end at the Bennettswood Bowling Club carpark. Gary has taken groups on this walk before and they have proven to be very informative and very popular which is why we’ve asked him to take this one in 2017. He will speak about the natural history of the area and the use of the surrounding environments by Indigenous people.

    Cost $25, or $20 concession.
