Cleaning up Tingalpa Creek, an enormous undertaking!

Commencing in March of this year, our Redlands River Warriors team have been kicking goals by removing vast amounts of rubbish from the popular Tingalpa Creek in the Redland City region near Brisbane. Made up of a variety of passionate local volunteers, they’ve battled plagues of mosquitos, fought against strong tidal currents and waded through waste-deep mud to retrieve day-to-day rubbish items that should have simply been disposed of correctly, or better yet, not been purchased in the first place!
