The group's purpose

FFDC currently focuses on the wider catchment area of Dandenong Creek and its tributaries between the Liverpool Road Retarding Basin in Boronia to the Boronia Road bridge, Wantirna.

FFDC can’t achieve this vital work alone. We gratefully acknowledge the ongoing support of such organisations and individuals as: 

  • Melbourne Water

  • Knox and Maroondah Council

  • Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP)

  • Living Links

  • Our local indigenous nurseries, Knox Environment Society (KES) and Community of Ringwood Indigenous Species Plant nursery (CRISP) together with Operation Reveg, Knox.

  • Our wonderful community of resident planters, activists and change-makers!

  • And you! You’re more than welcome to join the fun too!

FFDC’s objectives for this region include:


  • Improving the water quality and riparian habitat;

  • Litter reduction;

  • Management of environmental weeds;

  • Re-establishment of indigenous floral and faunal habitat, and;

  • Protecting the waterway from inappropriate development load

We gratefully acknowledge the ongoing financial support of our community, Melbourne Water, Knox and Maroondah councils.
