Representatives from the Friends of Damper Creek Reserve and the Friends of Scotchmans Creek and Valley Reserve have participated in a series of community workshops this year with Environmental Justice Australia (Bruce Lindsay Lawyer) and the YarraRiverkeeper (Andrew Kelly) to contribute towards the following Discussion Paper which has just been launched and will be presented to the Yarra River Protection Ministerial Advisory Committee in September 2016. The goal of the Discussion Paper is to establish a Yarra River Protection Act and Trust to ensure greater protections for the main stem of the Yarra River and its tributaries.
