Creek Stories tells the stories of our creeks, and the people looking after them.
We often forget creeks. We know the roads and the towns, and can see the hills and ranges, but the creeks get lost in the landscape.
The creeks are there though, following the fall of the land, and sculpting it over millennia. Their condition is a litmus test of how we care for the land - if the land is in good condition, the creeks will be happy and healthy.
Creek Stories is a project of the community environment groups of Gisborne, Riddells Creek and Macedon, managed by Riddells Creek Landcare, with funding from Macedon Ranges Shire Council, plus lots of volunteer time. All the creeks profiled here are at the top of the Maribyrnong River, mostly in the Jacksons Creek Catchment, and one in the Deep Creek catchment.
For people new to the area, this is an introduction to creeks. For people who have lived here a while, this is a chance to meet some of the people looking after the creeks in our bit of country.
Read about it here, then go out and visit your local creek. The creeks are waiting for you!
