Magical opening to Sumner Loving 2015

 Dancers atMerri ParkThe fabulous Merri Magical Morning opened the 2015 Sumner Loving program on 22 February, offering a new sense of place to Merri Park Northcote. The morning performance and stories from Wurundjeri dancers Djirri Djirri had the audience spellbound, and kids flocked to see the Spotted Marsh Frog, the Blue tongue lizard and the butterflies. Adults enjoyed weaving using local plants and people queued to have indigenous flora and fauna stories painted on their arms.  This event was part of the three year Friends of Merri Creek Sumner Loving project, funded by the State Government’s Communities for Nature grants program.  MCMC is helping the Friends of Merri Creek deliver the project.
