Lend a hand: on-ground volunteering, work experience and group activities
We arrange numerous community events each year, usually in partnership with Friends of Merri Creek and other community groups. Planting, monitoring and weeding events are mostly held on weekends although some of our events are ‘on-call’ and may occur during the week. All are welcome and the emphasis is on having fun. Visit the subscription page if you would like to receive email invitations to events in your area. A calendar of community events (including MCMC's and Friends groups' events) is available on MCMC's Website. Or like the Friends’ facebook page.
Volunteering with our Parkland Team
We welcome individual volunteers,including student and internship placements, to work alongside our Parkland Management crew. Availability may be limited by seasonal work demands and vehicle space. Past volunteers speak highly of the learning experience. For information about volunteering with our Parkland team click here.
We can provide worthwhile activities that can contribute to your organisation’s commitment to social responsibility and team building. For over ten years we have been providing customised activities to suit corporate or other groups. Group activities have a big impact on restoring the Merri Creek’s landscape, while also building the effectiveness of your team. See details here.
