TALK – “Saving the Merri Creek” with Ann and Bruce McGregor, Presented by the Coburg Historical Society

Wednesday 20 July, 8pm

Coburg Library, Cnr. Victoria St & Louisa St, Coburg VIC 3058

Ann and Bruce McGregor have been tireless environmental activists in the local area for more than 45 years. In the 1970s they managed to convince 7 Councils along the creek to form what is now the Merri Creek Management Committee.

These Councils cooperated in building a pathway and revitalising the creek and its environs, which transformed it from an industrial drain with weeds and rubbish into a great recreational and environmental asset.

Come on down for what is sure to be a fascinating talk celebrating the salvation of our beloved Merri Creek.

Please be COVID aware, face mask wearing is encouraged, and please refrain from attending if you are unwell or experiencing flu-like symptoms.
