The Currimundi Catchment Care Group (CCCG) and Friends of Currimundi Lake (FOCL) are hosting an afternoon of kite-making and kite-flying on the sand dunes of Currimundi Lake entrance from 1.30 to 3.30pm on Saturday 2nd June.

President of the Currimundi Catchment Care Group, Tony Moorhead, said the event was one of the most popular hosted by the group.  “Last year we had more than 350 people during the afternoon and the colourful kites flying against the bright blue sky were an amazing spectacle.”

Tony said that this event is part of CCCG’s anti-litter message.  “We aim to remind people that kites are a great alternative to balloons for outdoor functions.  Balloons can escape and enter our waterways.  After they burst they are often mistaken for food and eaten by fish or turtles causing damage and even death.  Strings and ribbons attached to balloons are also dangerous because they can become twisted around the legs of waterbirds.”

“On the day, kids will be able to paint kites with an environmental theme, and then fly them along the sand dunes.  It’s a great way for kids and their parents to learn more about how to preserve our natural environment and the native wildlife.  And that’s what attracts people to live here in the first place.”

“So, let’s help save our wildlife.  If you collect a bag of litter on your way to the event you can swap this for your kite.  Alternatively you can register for a free “picitup” bag to use for picking up litter on walks in future.”
