Enhancing Dandenong Creek

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.

 You can also sign up (follow) at the YourSay page to get updates if you wish: https://yoursay.melbournewater.com.au/enhancing-our-dandenong-creek

EAFE (Eastern Action for the Environment)

Dear EAFE members and friends,
You are invited to an EAFE (Eastern Action for the Environment) social get-together on Sunday 29 April2-4 pm.
This year is shaping up as politically and environmentally challenging.
We’ve done some great work in the past. Now we need to power up towards some strong actions prior to the State Elections late this year (and who knows, a federal one too?)
We’d love to get together with you all, maybe welcome some new members, share some of the highs of the last year’s campaigns, and get energised towards the committed actions needed later in the year.
But primarily this is a time to relax, to chat, share a cuppa with like-minded people, and get to know each other better.
small plate to share would be appreciated, and a keep cup if you have one, but we’d especially like to see new faces, so feel free to bring along a friend or neighbour whom you think may be interested in what we do.
We do hope you can come.
Please contact Heathmont Bushcare for full details of the event.
Regards
Gwyn Davies
on behalf of EAFE (Eastern Action for the Environment)
