“Rivers are the arteries of our planet; they are lifelines in the truest sense.” - Mark Angelo, Founder of World Rivers Day.
World Rivers Day is a day to celebrate and promote the importance of waterways around the world, which face an array of threats and require our dedicated stewardship. The Lane Cove River is one such beautiful and valuable waterway with remnant bushland and important ecological communities.
What better way to show your love for this local gem than to join Lane Cove Council’s Harbourcare team for a kayak along the Lane Cove River, collecting litter along the foreshore as we explore and protect this beautiful ecosystem.
