If you love taking a stroll down the Merri, Edgars, or Darebin Creeks (or your local waterway), here's a chance to give something back to them - by monitoring their health.
Merri Creek Management Committee (MCMC) is hosting a FREE training session to become a citizen science Waterwatch volunteer. You’ll learn how to collect water samples and test water quality, learn about the current ecological health of the Merri Creek, and carry out habitat assessments safely. Long-term data from this program assists with monitoring waterway health.

This event has a COVID Safe Plan, click here for a copy.
Proudly funded by Melbourne Water.

Wurundjeri panel - featureSee a web version of these fabulous panels which celebrate the outstanding community achievement since 1975 in transforming Merri Creek from a weed-smothered drain to a much-loved waterway running through a bushland corridor: fronts of panels (17MB file); backs of panels (9MB file).

The two metre size panels were originally displayed at libraries and other public places throughout the Merri Creek catchment over 16 months until late 2016, in celebration of MCMC's 25th Anniversary.
