It's wild out there...
Merri Creek Management Committee has been working with school communities to integrate environmental education into the curriculum for an engaging learning experience. There are some terrific places to visit along Merri Creek for learning about the local environment. Merri Creek flows from Wallan township north of Melbourne through the northern suburbs of Melbourne.
Restored indigenous habitat along the Merri is a great outdoor classroom. Students then understand that these plants are local to this area - not just native to Australia. They know that without biodiversity of this level of integrity means the loss of visitors such as the Sacred Kingfisher.
