Friends of Merri Creek is a community group that has actively worked since 1988 to restore and protect the Merri Creek.

We respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional and ongoing custodians of the Merri Merri and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and recognise that sovereignty has never been ceded.
