Nature PlayFederal Communities Environment Program: At very short notice we helped prepare eight Expressions of Interest for this grant program, in close consultation with Friends of Merri Creek and Wallan Environment Group.  Seven of these applications were successful and the funded projects have been confirmed (details below).  We are very appreciative of the support shown for Merri Creek restoration by our local federal MPs.

Hume City Council Community Partnership Grant:  We are delighted to have a $10,000 grant for the first year of A Little Nature Play in Hume. The three-year project will enable Merri Creek Management Committee staff to support and lead outdoor nature play in the City of Hume. Funding for the second and third years is contingent on the success of the first year. 

Darebin Biodiversity Grant: We congratulate our member group, the Friends of Merri Creek, for their success in gaining a $10,000 Darebin City Council Biodiversity Grant for Merri Parklands restoration Broadhurst-BT Conner, Reservoir. This project aims to support the restoration of remnants and rare plants along Merri Creek in Reservoir.
