Merri Creek Management Committee

WildPollinationCountThe Friends of Merri Creek and MCMC held our first Wild Pollinator Count on 13 November, funded by donors to the Help the Blue-banded Bee campaign and the Victorian Government.

MCMC’s Brian Bainbridge pointed out the planting sites in 2017 around Bababi Djinanang in Fawkner, placed a ‘bee hotel’ in the grassland and explained how to do a pollinator count. Participants can now submit their own data to the National Pollinator Count which aims to understand more about the thousands of native pollinator species.
The project’s ‘Blue Banded Bee Band’ gig, supported by high profile local musicians, attracted lots of interest and an article in The GuardianRead more.
