Darebin Creek Management CommitteeNestled in the Darebin Parklands, the Darebin Creek Management Committee (DCMC) comprises five staff members and operates from the Darebin Creek Enviroment Centre, Alphington. Most of the time the Darebin Parklands it is a peaceful place with dog-walkers, bike-riders and local residents walking along the shared trail. Red-rumped parrots feed on the ground and an indigenous garden surrounding the office serves as an example of how local species can be used in home gardens. However, the Parklands sometimes becomes a hive of activity with hundreds of school children seen playing sports in the park grounds or being taken on an excursion with the Education Ranger or Waterwatch Officer.
The DCMC was formed in 2001 by amalgamating the Darebin Creek Co-ordinating Committee (est.1984) and the Darebin Parklands Committee of Management (est.1978). The DCMC consists of 11 members who represent the four city councils, Banyule, Darebin, Whittlesea, Yarra and La Trobe University. The parklands division manage, maintain, educate and revegetate the Darebin Parklands, whilst the co-ordination division plan, advise, liaise, and comment on a range of issues that effect the creek and its linear parklands.
The Committee has been established to ensure the preservation, restoration, environmental protection, and ecologically sensitive development and maintenance of the Darebin Creek Linear Park. As a result we work closely with council on planning issues, Bush crew works, creek maintenance, revegetation and related issues.
