What is BERG
Mt Martha?

The Balcombe Estuary Reserves Group Mt Martha is a friends group formed to preserve and restore the unique ecology of the Balcombe Estuary and Reserves.

What do we do?

We remove weeds, plant indigenous species, monitor water quality, tackle drainage and sedimentation issues, engage schools and universities, conduct community education, talk to local groups, lobby government and much more.

See us at work!

Our main working bee activity is removing non-indigenous plants/weeds so that local natives have the space to grow. Click the video to watch us in action.
