Clean Up Australia Day: ALMA and Cumberland Council Join Hands for Environmental Awareness
AUBURN, March 5, 2023 – Clean Up Australia Day, an annual event aimed at raising awareness about environmental responsibility, took place on Sunday, March 5, 2023, across the country. This event brings together adults and children alike to actively participate in cleaning up their surroundings and fostering a sense of environmental stewardship.
ALMA, a community organization dedicated to promoting various social causes, has been actively involved in Clean Up Australia Day for several years. ALMA encourages its members to participate in this significant event and contribute to the collective effort of preserving the environment.
This year, ALMA had the privilege of being allocated the Duck River area at the Auburn Botanical Gardens as its clean-up location. On Sunday, March 5, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM, participants gathered at the Main Entrance – Picnic Area, located next to the site office. The clean-up event was organized in collaboration with Cumberland Council, which provided essential support and clean-up kits.
Children from kindergarten to Year 12 who volunteered for the clean-up received a “Certificate of Participation,” which holds significant recognition from local councils and schools. The certificates were presented by Ms. Lynda Jane Voltz, a Member of Parliament who graced the event with her presence. The Auburn Council demonstrated its full support for the initiative, further reinforcing the importance of the community’s involvement in environmental conservation efforts.
ALMA representatives were present at the site to guide and assist the volunteers throughout the clean-up activities. The collective efforts of the participants helped ensure the Duck River area at the Auburn Botanical Gardens was left pristine and free from litter. The event not only made a visible difference but also instilled a sense of pride and accomplishment among the volunteers, highlighting the positive impact individuals can have when they work together for a common cause.
As the event drew to a close near midday, light refreshments were served to the participants as a token of appreciation for their hard work and dedication. The sense of camaraderie and community spirit was palpable throughout the day, fostering a deeper connection among the participants and their shared commitment to environmental well-being.
