Merri Creek Management Committee

While walking or cycling along Merri Creek you may be aware of the indigenous plantings, constructed wetlands and the animal life of the creek corridor. But there is an underlying element to this - the Merri valley contains many millions of years of history and secrets.

MCMC presented an Urban Grassland Community Engagement Seminar on 18 September 2007. This was a component of the Northern Nature Creek Connections project funded by the Natural Heritage Trust. The outcomes of the seminar and further community engagement resources can be accessed here.

Grants and contracts to MCMC and Friends of Merri Creek have funded a busy 2007 winter of projects along the Merri waterways.

Green Gym volunteers are getting healthy exercise whilst working on conservation tasks along the Merri. Since late July 2007 eleven volunteers have been participating in weekly sessions .
