Are you interested in Landcare and in being part of a new Landcare group in the upper Merri area? Mitchell Shire Council is working with the Merri Creek Management Committee to promote the establishment of a new Landcare group for the Upper Plenty, Wallan, Beveridge and Heathcote Junction areas.

Come along to this community meeting and information session and hear from the members of other local Landcare groups about their experiences, and to discuss the idea of forming the Upper Plenty-Upper Merri Landcare Group with other locals. A light supper will be provided.

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.
