Arnolds Creek flows for over half its course through the town of Melton. It flows from Minns Road to the north of Melton, to the Melton Reservoir in the south. It connects the woodland areas to the north & north-west of Melton to the Werribee River volcanic gorge in the south.
On Saturday 20th July MEG hosted a bird walk in Toolern Regional Park. The morning was cold & grey but Geraldine, Brian, Nora & Daryl of MEG braved the bleak weather. Despite the weather Nora predicted that prospects of seeing birds were good; as after two days of wet, stormy weather, the birds may take advantage of the fine morning to come out for a feed.
On Friday 27th July, Carmen & Daryl represented MEG at the Keep Australia Beautiful Victoria / Sustainable Cities environmental awards presentation. Three environmental awards went to Melton.
On Saturday 22nd June MEG commemorated the Winter Solstice by resuming planting at at Arnolds Creek beside Brookfield. Participants were Carmen, Geraldine, Jenny, Doug, Daryl & a visitor, Rick.
On World Environment Day three local community environmental groups MEG, Friends of Toolern Creek & Friends of Melton Botanic Gardens were awarded grants of $1000 each.
