This “froginar” was made by Merri Creek Management Committee staff Trevor Hausler and Julia Cirillo, the Waterwatch Education Team, for the City of Yarra libraries school holiday program, Summer 2020/21.

Merri Creek Management Committee Incorporated (MCMC) is an environmental coordination and management agency formed in 1989. The primary purpose of the Merri Creek Management Committee (MCMC) is to ensure the preservation of natural and cultural heritage, and the ecologically sensitive restoration, development and maintenance of the Merri Creek and tributaries, their corridors and associated ecological communities.

Waterwatch is a free, fun and hands-on river health education program that supports volunteers, schools and businesses to actively protect the health of our rivers and creeks. The Statewide program is hosted by Merri Creek Management Committee on the northern Yarra River creeks. This includes the Darebin, Moonee Ponds, Edgars and Merri Creeks. The program is funded and supported by Council (the Cities of Darebin, Moreland, Moonee Valley, Whittlesea and Yarra) and Melbourne Water. Check out our instagram page : #MerriCreekWaterwatch

For further information mentioned in this “froginar” including the frog quiz, please check our frog resources at: https://www.mcmc.org.au/information-publications/digital-resources

If you are a big kid you can do both sides of the quiz, but if you are a little tadpole you may just want to do the first page with the help of an adult. If your school or group would like to have a free frog education session, please contact MCMC’s Waterwatch Coordinator, Julia Cirillo: This email address is being protected from spambots.
