  • Community BBQ: Refuel with delicious bites and connect with fellow eco-enthusiasts over a sizzling BBQ.
  • Launch of the 5-Year Lower Dandenong Creek Litter Action Plan: join us  as we unveil a comprehensive plan aimed at reducing litter in our waterways. The Action Plan, a result of collaboration between City of Kingston, City of Greater Dandenong, City of Casey, Parks Victoria, and EPA Victoria, outlines short and long-term actions across various domains to drive a meaningful reduction in litter.


To join us on the water, bring your kayak or borrow one of ours and join us as we navigate the tranquil waters, collecting litter lodged in the reed beds to prevent it from reaching Port Phillip Bay. Please register if you wish to participate in the kayak activity.  We ask that you agree to our Terms and Conditions for Kayak usage and register via the button at the bottom of this page by selecting ‘Yes’ on our Paddle for Patterson Event Entry Application and Declaration. Not keen on getting out on the water? No problem! You’re welcome to join our foot patrol collecting litter along the river bank or get amongst one of our other exciting activities.
