Water Quality Training Workshop on the Merri CreekSunday 2 April, 10am -1pm

Merri Creek, across from DeChene Reserve Coburg (off Connolly St) - see map

Join the MCMC Waterwatch Coordinators on the Merri Creek in Coburg to collect data on waterbug diversity. The session will cover sampling and collecting of live aquatic macroinvertebrates, and identifying live macroinvertebrates to family level in order to determine the water quality of Merri Creek. Some previous experience with macroinvertebrate identification is great but not essential.
Bookings essential - Here.

This event is only suitable for those 15 years of age and above (those under 18 years must attend with a parent or guardian). Please wear sturdy shoes, dress for the weather and don’t attend if you are feeling unwell.
Proudly funded by the City of Merri-bek and 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.
