Inspecting the grasslands


For October 2016 Fawkner Library features a unique exhibition of photographs showing the Merri Creek Valley before and during it’s transformation over the last 40 years.

Pop in to the library to enjoy this free exhibition and appreciate the work of so many people, many volunteers to make Merri Creek an important natural ecosystem refuge in our urban environment.

The photographic exhibition is by the Merri Creek Management Committee and the Friends of Merri Creek.

Featuring ‘before and after’ photographs illustrating the transformation of Merri Creek from a drain and dumping ground to a waterway and a much-loved bushland corridor, the exhibition celebrates the ongoing collaborative efforts by community volunteers, local Councils, government agencies and others. While there is still much to be done, the creek continues to improve.

Event: Monday 03 October 2016 to Friday 28 October 2016 during Fawkner Library Open hours
Cost: Free

Opening hours

Monday and Thursday 11 am – 5.30 pm
Tuesday 11 am – 8 pm

Saturday 10 am – 1 pm
