Southern Dandenongs Landcare Group was very pleased to participate in the inaugural Belgrave Big Dreams Market when it was held at Belgrave Lake Park as it occured right in the middle of our catchment area.
Southern Dandenongs held a landcare information stall at the 2014 Selby Fest. This popular festival is held at Minak Reserve in Selby where the Friends of Minak Reserve took informative walk and talk tours of this iconic reserve. See the Friends Group section to find out how you can get involved.
In September 2013 the Southern Dandenongs Landcare Group hosted 98 children from Mt Martha Primary School for fun and environmental exploration based at Birdsland and the local Monbulk Creek. It was so successful that SDLG plans to run similar experiences for other schools in future.

We are writing to ask for your help with a research project about how people value natural areas, which forms part of a broader project with the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment to measure the community’s values for public land.
Hello Friends and Landcarers All,
Here is an opportunity for all of you who would like to learn more about wildlife in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The Fauna Survey Group from the highly regarded Field Naturalists Club of Victoria is looking for interested people to assist with surveys over the next couple of years. See following letter from Robin Drury.
It was terrific to be invited to chair the fifth Annual General Meeting of the Southern Dandenongs Landcare Group (SDLG) at Selby Community House.
I am always impressed by the breadth of activities this group undertakes, there's no doubt they are committed and passionate when it comes to improving our local environment and raising awareness about environmental issues.
In the past year the SDLG have been involved in so many activities. There are some key annual events the group are committed to including Awesome Ornithorhynkids day at Belgrave Lake, Mini Beast Festival at Birdsland and Selbyfest.
Many of us will have watched with great sadness the fires on the west face of the Dandenongs tonight, Tues 9th April 2013. We know that these so fuel reduction burns managed by DSE’s Melbourne Bushfire Protection Program will do nothing to increase community safety in the event of a large bushfire.
