Night Eyes was formed 20 years ago by Golden Beach resident Greg McKean to keep a watchful eye over happenings in the Pumicestone Passage and surrounding areas. Most of the operation was done at night – hence the name. The operation has changed considerably now with no night work, and has grown from one or two people to a membership approaching 100 – that a lot of ‘eyes’ watching over our local water and land. They now have a larger and more suitable boat allowing a larger payload and easier transport of personnel. Night Eyes is wholly operated by volunteers. Last year they collected over 100,000 litres of rubbish from the Pumicestone and its catchment, trying to clean up the litter before it reaches the water.
