Merri Creek Management Committee

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung People of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the land of the Merri Merri.

People using Merri pathThanks to 67 generous donors, our 2020 Merri Creek Environment Fund Appeal raised a healthy $14,500. This heartening response reflects how much the local community cares for Merri Creek and people's gratitude for its restored environs. We have seen a huge increase in the number of people using the Merri Creek parklands for their physical and mental well-being during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We were touched by appreciative comments from donors: You have created a ribbon of magic through the suburbs the Merri Creek travels.

I've seen photos of the degraded state of the creek before community members started caring for it.  The collective action has made a remarkable difference, creating a place that gives enormous value to the community and a wonderful environmental benefit.

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.
