New guide – Look for our fungi      

Read all about fungi along Merri Creek.      

This new guide by Dr Sapphire McMullan-Fisher explores the fungi of Merri Creek, explains their role and what you can do to help protect them and the bushland. There are excellent photographs for you to ID any fungi you come across – including weedy fungi. Dr McMullan-Fisher gave us a fascinating presentation at the 2019 annual general meeting, opening up the world of fungi and their role in plant life. The guide also steps you through the process of adding records to iNaturalist with tips for taking photographs that will best support your records.

Ninth Murnong Gathering

The Merri and Edgars Creek Confluence Area Restoration Group’s Murnong Gathering on 11 November 2017 was bigger than the event in 2016, which we thought was pretty big then! With easily 200 people attending, perhaps they’re building up to an even bigger tenth event in 2018. Once again the day included, a warm Wurundjeri Welcome to Country from Aunty Di Kerr, fabulous dancing from the Djirri Djirri dancers (joined once again by many in the audience – as in the photo), fun weaving, and of course the harvest and cook-up of the endangered Murnong, along with other bush tucker. However, this time there was even a mobile compost toilet on site! Thanks to Moreland Council for funding and to MCMC for providing marquees, equipment and assistance for the BBQ.
