Friends of Blind Creek Billabong

The Friends of Blind Creek Billabong

Since July 2001, the Friends of Blind Creek Billabong have been planting local indigenous species, controlling weeds and cleaning up litter in Blind Creek Reserve and Agora Bushland Reserve.

All of the Reserve is part of a very important wildlife corridor which extends from Mount Dandenong through to Dandenong Creek. Birds, (large and small including Barn owls), Little Forest bats, frogs, lizards, beetles, butterflies, skippers, other insects and more all depend on the Creek Reserve and the adjoining Bushland.

The Creek Reserve and the Agora Bushland (original Valley Heathy Forest) adjoining the development property are very important for protecting the habitat of all the land we care for. Our intention is to protect this bushland for future generations.

The friends group have achieved many things over the years including campaigning to protect and save areas of bushland on a adjoining disused quarry.


Activities

The Friends Group meets on the second Tuesday of each month (excluding Jan) between 10am and 12noon and conduct the following activities depending on the time of year;

  • Planting local indigenous species

The Friends Group also meet several times per year for activities such as;
