Hume, Moreland and Moonee Valley  Councils run planting activities during the winter season and would prefer people to register their attendance on their websites to assist with planning and catering.

Check the calendar link above for all of the latest planting dates and details.

For all plantings, please wear appropriate clothing and footwear and bring your own gloves and drinking.  Children are very welcome when accompanied by an adult.

Revegetation Guide

Have you ever wondered how we know what to plant along the Creek ?  Here is the comprehensive Moonee Ponds Creek Corridor Revegetation Guidelines that we follow.  (Apologies for the poor quality of the scan, if anyone has an electronic copy of the document, please let us know !)

There is always something happening on the information and planning front.  FoMPC is regularly involved in submissions or objections to projects that could impact the creek, as well as providing interesting updates.
