Friends working together to protect Merri Creek

Friends organize regular creek-side activities and everybody is welcome. You don't need to be a member to participate although we always welcome new members.  Activities include

  • planting and site maintenance

  • bird surveys

  • water quality testing

  • litter blitzes.

More about these activities

In the late 1970s the engineering vision for our creek was of freeways and concrete drains. We now have a shared community vision of a restored and flourishing Merri Creek and extensive parklands enjoyed by local communities.

Community vision

Campaigning for the protection and enhancement of the Merri Creek is integral to our work.
