Our Vision

Our philosophy We believe it is important to build links with good habitat, primarily along the streams, between the Dandenong Ranges National Park, Kurth Kiln Regional Park, Bunyip State Park and the Yarra River. Emerald Creek is an important part of these links. Links provide habitat for animals that already live there and also allow animals to move between the larger reserves.

We strongly support the work by local environmental groups to reserve public land along these streams into a Woori Yallock Creek Nature Conservation Reserve.

We also support the work of agencies such as Yarra4Life, Melbourne Water and Yarra Ranges Council in developing these links and will work cooperatively with them to improve public and private land in the Monbulk area. Private land along streams can often strongly complement the habitat available on public land.

We believe without question that individuals can make a difference to the health of the environment and wish to support local people to undertake activities on public and private land that ‘Think Globally. Act Locally.’
