Today Room 3 and 17 joined the older Enviro team members to do a rubbish pick up at Petone Beach. We joined Ben from Sustainable Coastlines to do the rubbish audit.
We were Civilian Scientists for the morning!

Petone beach is a beautiful spot but it was a bit chilly today!
Johnsonville school civilian scientists!

Then we had to weigh it all and load all our rubbish information.
