Maroondah has a unique biodiversity and is lucky to be home to peri-urban bushland areas. There are many ways to get involved and help enhance the biodiversity of Maroondah.
Ways to get involved
Environmental volunteer groups
Community environmental groups and volunteers are extremely important in helping Council ensure our parks and bushland areas are well looked after.
Many groups hold annual or bi-annual planting days with the assistance of Council, while others hold monthly weeding working bees. They are a great way to get involved in the community and learn more about our native plants and the environment.
For a list of local environmental and 'Friends of' groups in Maroondah, visit our community groups webpage.

Kindergarten, school and business planting days
Council offer education planting days for kindergartens, schools and businesses in Maroondsah. These days are great ways to fill a Maroondah Reserve with plants and educate participants on indigenous plants and how to properly plant them in the ground.
Private residential education
Council also offer home visits to discuss indigenous flora suitable for your property to further enhance Maroondah's biodiversity and create stepping stones for native birds and wildlife. Council can also provide residents with free indigenous plants for their property.
For more information or to discuss potential planting days or home visits, please contact Bushland Revegetation and Community by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 88 22 33 or 9298 4598.
