What it’s about

This year the festival is proud to be involved in driving 3 Coastal Clean-Up Walks.

Too much plastic and litter on our coast is not cool. This is a chance for walkers and lovers of the outdoors to give back and to help pick it up.

When & Where

Clean-Up Walk starts at 8:30 for 9:00 and takes place in Mossel Bay, Knysna and Nature’s Valley. 

We have teamed up with Love Our Trails to help make this happen. Please volunteer and get involved.

What you need

Bring a spirit of fun. Gardening gloves or others – there are not always pleasant things to pick up when dealing with trash.

A sandwich or two, sun hat, water and a good backpack to help carry back what we pick up.
