Merri Creek Management Committee

This new Google Earth Tour allows you to virtually fly up the Merri Creek valley visiting the grassland and woodland sites of MCMC’s three year project: Reinforcing Grassland Ecological Values.

Google Earth Tour File

The two minute tour takes you to five endangered ecosystems in our ‘own backyard’ and summarises the restoration activity, with links to detailed information.

Fron 2010-2013 the Australian Government Caring for Our Country project allowed us to pursue more strategic Grassland restoration goals than is possible under one-year grants. The works include ecological burning and digging, in partnership with Wurundjeri Traditional Owners. A benign spray-on grazing deterrent was trialled to protect young shrubs from hungry wallabies, while mapping with aerial photographs is aiding strategic weed control.

Technical details of the project’s work were shared through an E Newsletter, Merri Restoration Notes.
