First planting along Wallan Creek with Wallan Primary School in November 2003Wallan Environment Group was called the Friends of Wallan Creek until April 2010. The group's original goal was to restore and enhance the environmental values of Wallan Creek, a tributary of Merri Creek, as it flows through the town of Wallan, north of Melbourne. 

Accordingly, Wallan Environment Group's initial focus was on weed removal, revegetation, and mulching work along Wallan Creek in Wallan Community Park, the reserve behind Wallan Scout Hall (along Watson Street). The extensive revegetation work that the group has undertaken in the park has involved the use of plants that are indigenous to the local area. The group has now enlarged its goals to cover the natural environment in and around Wallan. The photos show the huge improvement along Wallan Creek from the first planting, with Wallan Primary School, in November 2003 to November 2014.
