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.
