The Mighty Duck River Will you give volunteering a quack?! Tucked away in Sydney West, is an urban waterway in need of some help! Duck River flows year-round into Parramatta River, connecting vital waterways across the city and providing a green corridor for native animals to move around our city.

However, over time, the river has struggled to fight against the invasive plants taking hold of the river bank.

To tackle this, the community has come together; removing weeds from the river bank, scooping up some of the plastics and bottles harming our wildlife and our oceans - we're working to improve water quality on Duck River to improve our city. Would you like to be part of this story...

Volunteers on the Mighty Duck River project can:

-Find satisfaction in removing plastic pollution from the Might Duck River

-Get on your groove and help remove some invasive weeds species

-Enjoy a guided tour with our friendly ecologist & learn about the native wildlife living in our urban waterways! Plus we'll throw in a delicious morning tea to say thanks!
