Friends Of Darebin Creek

The Friends of Darebin Creek are a group of enthusiastic locals who want to look after the creek and its surrounding bushland. Friends activities are seasonal in nature – typically planting native trees and groundcover, removing weeds, rubbish cleanups, and wildflower walks. We have also been involved in bird surveys, nestbox building and attending local festivals. Events are run by council bush crews from Banyule, Darebin and Whittlesea, and there is usually a cuppa and snack at the end.

Events are usually on the last Sunday of each month, but there can be mid-month events.  You can find out how to become a financial member on the website, but you don’t have to be a member to attend events.

Friends have quarterly planning meetings at the Darebin Parklands often featuring a guest speaker.

Attending Friends events and meetings is a great way to meet locals who want to conserve the local environment. Friends always welcomes anyone who wishes to contribute to the activities of the group.
