Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek will be holding its last environmental day this Sunday 1st November 2015. Come along & participate to provide some TLC for our planting on National Tree Day. We will be doing some maintenance work, such as spreading mulch in anticipation of an El-Nino very dry hot summer & removing weeds. Would love to see you for this last event, stay for a cuppa and hear news & updates from our president Geoff.

Looking forward to seeing you all on this day. Coming events, our Annual General Meeting on 9th September and proposed full day bus trip exploring the Kororoit Creek from its beginning to Port Phillip Bay.
