In the lead up to Earth Day on April 22, the organisation, with partners Alinytjara Wilurara Natural Resources and Parks and Wildlife Service SA hope to create awareness of the impacts people have on their surrounding environment.

This year's Earth Day theme is 'climate action'.

NREP are encouraging people to use rubbish found in the local area, beach, bush or backyard to create a piece of art that relates to Earth Day, and submit photos by 5pm on Wednesday April 22.

Submit an application form and two photos (one of you creating the artwork and the final product) to the email Karrena.Veltman@sa.gov.au.

The first prize is a 400 lumen solar light, a day-pack and first aid kit, and a thermos. Second and third place prizes are also offered.
