Tanti Creek Friends currently have 2 grants from Melbourne Water to replant the creek banks. Floods from stormwater into the Creek have meant a lot of effort has to go into clearing flood debris brought down by the creek. Hardwood stakes are placed upstream of new plantings – which have to be water-tolerant – to collect some of this debris and many plants are surviving under tough conditions. Local residents are urged to contribute a few hours there the last Sunday of each month. Melbourne Water has also provided a support grant to MEA to assist with public liability insurance for all volunteers.
