Friends of Werribee River through Bacchus Marsh

Friends of Werribee River through Bacchus Marsh

If you have a passion for the environment and would like to get involved in hands-on work then check out our group on Facebook

We are working on restoring the Werribee River through Bacchus Marsh and we meet for Sunday morning working bees every two months.

We have around 70 members with 20 – 40 attending each working bee. We are a group of all ages, we have fun while we work, and we eat well.

Working bees

There is a role for every skill in our group - typically we need many hands for weeding and planting trees and watering, photography, makers of tea and coffee, bbq operator, someone with a 4-wheel drive to tow a trailer, an equipment officer and someone to do media releases.

You don’t have to live in Bacchus Marsh to join us; in fact the railway station and bus service is within walking distance of where we work.

If you live in Melbourne and want to get out occasionally to this beautiful part of Victoria, then our work might suit your interests (you get to Bacchus Marsh by taking the Ballarat train on the V-Line service from Southern Cross station).
