The City of Merri-bek offers wonderful nature experiences including significant remnant vegetation and large tracts of revegetated areas, particularly along the creek corridors.

These places provide important habitat for native birds and animals and offer treasured opportunities for community to recreate and seek respite from the busyness of the City.

The Merri-bek Nature Plan provides a heightened strategic direction to enhance biodiversity and celebrate nature in our City for the next four years and beyond.

On this page you can track the progress of our Nature Plan implementation and learn about current and future projects.

Implementing the Nature Plan

We have identified clear projects for delivery over 4 years. We have also identified ongoing actions as part of Council’s core service in open space/natural resource management. These are expected to be delivered for the next 10 years and beyond.
