Aitken Creek in Craigieburn is a hive of activity as Merri Creek Management Committee (MCMC) helps to implement the ‘Aitken Creek’s Living Pathways’ project. This project, funded by a Melbourne Water Grant to Friends of Merri Creek, aims to establish pollination pathways for endangered Matted Flax Lily and engage the local community in the conservation of this urban habitat corridor. Aitken Creek is a tributary of Merri Creek.
