Merri Creek Management Committee

St Albans Grassland burnAfter an action-packed couple of months, our busiest burning season yet is at an end (November 2021).  

This autumn we conducted 14 ecological burns in grassland vegetation. Eight of these were at Merri sites and 6 at other locations across greater Melbourne, including a few sites that haven’t seen a fire for several decades. We’re very excited to see what grassland treasures emerge from these reserves this spring!
