Management of the Reserves

Frankston City Council (FCC) manages the 43 hectares of natural reserves lining the Creek. This comprises a mixture of Crown Land and land owned by FCC . There are also a few small parcels of land on the flood plain owned and managed by Melbourne Water.

KCA voluntary activities include:

• Planting, watering and mulching of plants during the planting season
• Weeding
• Collection of seed and cuttings at appropriate times
• Trail maintenance
• Erosion control and prevention
• Some Fire Prevention
• Clean Up Days

Most of the work is manual, but relatively light. Necessary tools are supplied, but you do need to wear suitable attire, especially footwear and sun protection please. Children are always welcome, but do need to be supervised by an adult. Our work sites are in reserves and therefore are not serviced by fresh water or toilets; please bear this in mind when planning to attend a working bee.

Working bees are held along the creek reserve, but frequency is very much determined by community participation . In addition to the work carried out by members and volunteers, special working bees may also involve local community groups. In the past, these have included schools, Green Army and corporate groups.
