Georges Riverkeeper advocates for the protection, conservation and enhancement of the health of the Georges River. Work focuses on five strategic priorities: catchment actions (such as litter removal and bush rehabilitation), river health monitoring and research, stormwater, and education and capacity building.
Georges Riverkeeper represents the eight local councils in the Georges River Catchment of NSW with a collective responsibility for the health of the Georges River. Members include Bayside Council, Campbelltown City Council, City of Canterbury Bankstown, Fairfield City Council, Georges River Council, Liverpool City Council, Sutherland Shire Council and Wollondilly Shire Council.

Get the Site Right
Wollondilly Council has teamed up with the Georges Riverkeeper organisation and the Environmental Protection Authority for a month-long education and compliance campaign called Get the Site Right.
The campaign, which advises builders on the best practice erosion and sediment controls for their worksites, will end with a one-day inspection blitz on Thursday, 20 May 2021.
