The Friends of Murrk Ngubitj Yarram Yaluk currently meet on the first Wednesday of the month at the fantastic new reserve; Murrk Ngubitj Yarram Yaluk reserve (formerly the Bellarine Basin) 🌿

Each month, the dedicated Friends of Murrk Ngubitj Yarram Yaluk volunteers undertake bush regeneration works through the removal of weeds, log bird, plant and fungi sightings on citizen science apps and monitor the regeneration of indigenous plants. It's a great way to get early access to this awesome site, learn about indigenous and weedy plants, spot some cool birds or meet new people. And we always finish the session with morning tea!

We always meet at the north west corner of Murrk Ngubitj Yarram Yaluk, 280-324 Swan Bay Road, Wallington, Wadawurrung Country. Google Maps link: https://maps.app.goo.gl/awNXUZQRbBUDG3ND9
