Revegetating Darebin Creek 2022-23
The community group Friends of Darebin Creek is working with other groups to revegetate the Darebin Creek where it flows through Reservoir, Kingsbury and Bundoora.
Meeting location is near carpark at end of River Red Gum Ave
Join Darebin Bushcrew in planting under the remnant red gums at Bundoora Park. We will be building on the planting that has happened through the Rewilding Program. We aim to increase biodiversity and remove pressure from significant redgums throughout the park.
Access creek via corner of Ayr and Gronn Streets in Reservoir. Follow the signs and look for bushcrew vehicles.
Help Friends of Darebin Creek increase creek-side habitat with a planting event along the creek near Gronn Street, Reservoir. This planting will extend on earlier plantings in the area to create more habitat for animals and birds.
The Friends of Darebin Creek acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woiwurrung people who are the Traditional Owners of the land around the Darebin Creek. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
