NOMINATIONS FOR VEFN 2018 BEST FRIEND AWARD CLOSE WEDNESDAY 27TH JUNE.
There are less than three weeks left to complete nominations for this year’s VEFN Best Friend Award.The award acknowledges the outstanding contribution made to the environment by volunteer members of Friends groups.
The Department of Environment, Land Water & Planning has again generously provided VEFN with a grant of $5,000 in support of the Best Friend Award. As in previous years, VEFN will provide a grant to award recipients’ groups. In 2017, Friends of Tyers Park used its grant to upgrade walking track signage. See the story (page 2) in the May edition of FriendsNET here.
If there is someone in your Friends group, who you believe shows personal dedication above and beyond the usual expectation, nominating them for this award is one way of showing how much your group values their efforts. Nominations are assessed by an independent judging panel and will be presented at the award ceremony on 25th August. The awards ceremony will be held at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne.
The criteria for the Best Friend Award and a nomination form can be downloaded here. Nominations are due by 5 pm on Wednesday 27th June, 2018.
In conjunction with the Best Friend Award, we will again run a poster competition. Friends groups are encouraged to submit their posters for a prize to be awarded at the Best Friend Award ceremony in August.

What ideas do you have to help revitalise Dandenong Creek?
We would love to hear from you, your friends, neighbors and community with ideas for future works in the Enhancing our Dandenong Creek program.
On World Water Day we launched a new interactive online mapping tool on, where anyone can provide suggestions for future improvements in the area. This will be used to inform what type of works we undertake next in Enhancing Our Dandenong Creek, commencing in the second half of this year.
The map is available at: https://melbournewater.mysocialpinpoint.com/enhancing-our-dandenong-creek#/
Simply drag and drop a marker to the highlighted area, leave a comment or support another idea listed.
