2021 Merri Creek Environment Fund appeal

Silver Banksia JJ HarrisonOver the last 18 months our open spaces have become more precious to us than ever and the Merri Creek Parklands are no exception.

This year we are asking for your help to bring back the forgotten Banksia Woodlands of the Merri. These were once widespread but now none of the original Merri banksias remain. 

Your donation will also help support the harvesting and storage of seed from our precious Seed Production Areas and the care and monitoring of our nest-boxes and artificial hollows.

PLEASE DONATE: Donations of $2 or more to the Merri Creek Environment Fund are tax deductible. Pay by credit card via the secure GiveNow site.

Details for other payment methods are here, as well as more information about the Merri Creek Environment Fund.

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.
