The Werribee River Association is hoping a flood of attendees will flow to its upcoming event.

The free Healthy Waterways evening, to be held later this month, will outline the work undertaken by the association’s staff and volunteers.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to provide input and feedback into the association’s draft strategic plan.

Werribee Riverkeeper John Forrester said Wyndham residents could attend Healthy Waterways to see what they could do to add to the health of the area and build pride in their community.

Werribee River Association member, Lisa Field, who is also co-ordinator of a monthly litter clean-up group in Werribee called Love Our Street 3030, said the Healthy Waterways would be a “wonderful opportunity” to engage with the river association, its staff and volunteers.

Dr Teresa Mackintosh is a science officer for the Werribee River Association.

“I love walking by the river and seeing the old river red gums that have managed to survive,” she said.

“I love the fact the river provides a haven in a busy world.

“You can be in the hustle and bustle of Watton Street, then a few minutes later walking along by the river for some peace and tranquillity.”

Healthy Waterways will be held on Thursday, May 30, from 7-8.30pm at the Werribee Bowls Club, Chirnside Park, 239 Watton Street, Werribee.

Tea, coffee to follow. RSVP to
