Troops move out of Mullum Mullum
The Green Army project at Mullum Mullum Creek is complete.
Michael Sukkar, Federal Member for Deakin, joined troops at the Mullum Mullum Green Army project site this afternoon to present certificates and tour the grounds.
Mr Sukkar spoke at the graduation of the Green Army participants, who have spent the last six months repairing, replanting, and revitalising the Mullum Mullum Creek area.
“I’m so grateful for the tremendous effort by participants in this project, especially the project leaders and council officers who helped drive the initiative,” Mr Sukkar said.
“The Mullum Mullum Creek area was in desperate need of revitalisation and will now serve as one of the premier bushland areas in our electorate.
“It’s uplifting to get such positive feedback from local residents who have already noticed the change and improvement to Mullum Mullum Creek, and its surrounds.
“Through their dedication and teamwork, the Green Army participants have made an invaluable contribution to the health and vitality of this important community asset.
“The participants have not only facilitated real environment and conservation benefits for our community, but they have gained practical training and experience to help them prepare for the workforce, pursue further training or improve their career opportunities.”
This is the fourth successful Green Army project in the Deakin electorate, with other completed projects at Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, Eastfield Reserve and Heatherdale Creek.
