The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and elder members of our multicultural community.
We proudly work in partnership with Arweet Carolyn Briggs and the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
