Merri Creek Management Committee

Merri Creek Management Committee’s expert environmental education staff recognise traditional owners when they support your community or school group to learn about local biodiversity and waterways.

Merri Creek Management Committee provides schools and community groups with engaging and diverse environmental education opportunities to learn about the native flora and fauna of the Merri Creek and other nearby waterways in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and beyond.

Our three minute film - Celebrating Merri Creek's Local Biodiversity - vividly illustrates our approaches to environmental education.

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities

Since Merri Creek's catchment is home to people from over 100 language groups, MCMC's commitment to community engagement connects it with an exceedingly diverse community.

These communities are referred to as CaLD communities to acknowledge their Cultural and Linguistic Diversity.

Programs include Guided ecotours, Clean Streets for Clean Rivers, Studying English as a Second Language with a Nature Focus and Putting Down Roots.
