Melton Shire is home to over 160 bird species.  We have many nearby areas with a wide diversity of birdlife. ie. Eynesbury, Melton Gilgai Woodland, Strathtulloh, Caroline Springs wetland, Botanica Springs wetland, Werribee River, & Arnolds, Little Blind, Ryans & Toolern Creeks.

Bird watching beginners who have had no prior involvement in serious bird watching are invited to MEG bird walks, although all birdwatchers are invited to participate. All sites are easy walking, with no bushwalking involved. When our long awaited website is operational Melton bird records will be placed here.

Join the MEG Birdwalking group on their monthly bird walks. Recent walks include Eynesbury, Strathtulloh Woodland,  Melton Botanic Garden and Toolern Regional Park.

Melton’s creeks are a major focus of MEG’s activities. Our creeks, although small, are of crucial importance as they provide almost the only areas of natural vegetation left within urban Melton.

Currently, tree planting activities are at Brookfield.

These will be the 1st Saturday of each month.

Meet at Arnolds Creek in Black Dog Drive (near the Black Dog Road Bridge) just west of the roundabout of Coburns Road & Black Dog Drive. There is a small kindergarten carpark here& access is easy. Tools & plants provided.

The site  is very child friendly.
