Merri Creek Management Committee

Spotted Pardalote cropped P MollisonThanks to 76 generous donors, our 2019 Merri Creek Environment Fund Appeal raised a healthy $14,655. This excellent response shows just how much the local community cares for Merri Creek and supports initiatives to improve the creek, its wildlife and biodiversity. The fundraising theme was 'Making Homes for Wildlife' and the funds will provide nest boxes for birds and microbats and support for associated community monitoring. 

We need nest boxes for tree-hollow dependent creatures, because the planted trees along the lower Merri Creek are many decades away from forming natural hollows.

The two metre size panels were originally displayed at libraries and other public places throughout the Merri Creek catchment over 16 months until late 2016, in celebration of MCMC's 25th Anniversary.
