Moonee Ponds Creek in the News
Moonee Ponds Creek was featured in the news earlier this month, with the ABC highlighting our community's work to restore the creek to its natural form.
As reported, the Victorian government has committed $7 million to a plan to remove 500m (or 700 tonnes) of concrete from the Creek and restore its natural beauty by planting indigenous plants and installing six rock weirs. Additionally, the plan includes separate cycling and walking paths so that more people can enjoy the area.
Our own Chain of Ponds lead, Rachel Lopes, was interviewed for the news story.
"I think people are turning towards it and appreciating it as a creek, a river and a beautiful place to be," Rachel said. "People love to come down by their creek, so spending money now in these urban areas is really important and hopefully it continues on and on."
Congratulations to everyone involved in the Chain of Ponds Collaboration. This story reinforces the importance of the great work we are all doing for Moonee Ponds Creek.
