May I welcome you to Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek Inc. website.
If you would like to get involved with FOLKC or would like to be kept in touch with our plans and activities for the Kororoit Creek by email, join the mailing list below.
Hoping to see you 'Down the Creek' real soon.
Members of Friends of Kororoit Creek Inc. (FOLKC) and two bicycle groups, along with Deputy Mayor and Officers of Hobsons Bay were briefed by Western Distributor people on the bicycle network proposed for the West of Melbourne as part of the Westgate Tunnel Project (WTP).
Great News, the offroad shared trail between Barnes Road and Blackshaws Road is under construction and due to be complete by National Tree Day on 30th July 2017.
No doubt - from reading the `Hobsons Bay Friends Groups conservation activities calendar', you will be aware that Sunday 5th March is `Clean-up Australia Day.'
Folkc will be participating and will be operating near the NTD 2017 site at the `Urban Forest' cnr Grieve Pde & Blackshaws Rd Altona North.
We will meet at the car park in Blackshaws Rd at 10:00am and will walk to the area where the rubbish is to be collected, along the old bitumen road leading under Grieve Pde and then along the Melb Water maintenance track running alongside Kororoit Creek.
All welcome - please remember to wear suitable clothing & footwear and bring a pair of cloves.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the day. Geoff.
The Melbourne Water crushed rock access track has been completed between Burgess Street drain and McArthurs Road in Altona North giving the community a walking trail between McArthurs Road and Blackshaws Road. Several falls in this area were the direct result of not having a proper path, Len for one has had a couple of falls here when out bird watching.
FOLKC last night, received the prestigious community group award for its work along Kororoit Creek at an awards and recognition night, as part of Melbourne Water’s 21st Birthday of the River Health Incentives Program (RHIP).
