Merri Creek Management Committee

Burn at Ngarri djarrangWe recently finished our 2022 burn program - the biggest ever! Eleven ecological burns were conducted at a range of sites across greater Melbourne. MCMC worked with Darebin City Council to burn Ngarri-djarrang grassland in Reservoir and undertoook burns at a number of Merri grassland sites in Fawkner.  We also conducted burns at Braybrook Grassland, under contract for the Department of Transport, and at rail corridor sites for Metro Trains Melbourne. In order to successfully carry out our burn program, all our Ecological Restoration Team members completed ‘Assist with prescribed burn’ training in April, including six new team members who recently joined us.
