Ski resorts are part of our backyard, and our playgrounds. They support fragile and unique ecosystems and threatened species. They provide clean water for us, the environment and farmers across south eastern Australia.

Spend the day at the snow and help clean up the Perisher area. When the snow melts, rubbish dropped during the ski season becomes exposed. Litter is a major threat to the ecosystems around the Perisher ski resort, because of its high number of visitors and the strong winds there. It’s important collect this litter before it blows into creeks and vegetation.

At the 2018 clean up, volunteers collected 400kg of general waste, plus 25kg for recycling.

As well as feeling great about helping this beautiful environment, you’ll also be rewarded with free cake, morning tea and a barbecue at the end.
