A healthy waterways initiative
Tuesday 7 February 2012
6:00pm – 8:00pm
CERES Community Environment Park
Stewart Street, Brunswick East (Melway 30 B7)
Meet at 6:00pm on Merri Creek Trail, east of Merri Creek Management Committee Building (near end of Lee St, Brunswick East)
There is no charge to attend.
In January 2012, an injured platypus was discovered in Merri Creek. Since the find, Melbourne Water has introduced additional platypus surveying on the creek. We are pleased to invite you, your colleagues and friends to this information session about our platypus monitoring program and how platypus surveys are done.
Melbourne Water people will be joined at the information session by people from cesar Australia, our platypus monitoring contractors.
At 6:00pm, join us on the Merri Creek Trail to see how nets are set up for platypus surveys.
At about 7:00pm, join us in Rooms 2 and 3 at CERES (Stewart Street entrance) to find out about platypus biology, Melbourne Water’s platypus monitoring program – including additional monitoring since the January find – and results of monitoring.
We look forward to seeing you there.
