Whilst COVID-19 restrictions mean our exhibition spaces are temporarily closed, the Lerderderg Library is delighted to host this online exhibition during September.

Grow West Biodiversity Photographic Exhibition 2020

Grow West is an ambitious landscape restoration program that works with local communities in the upper Werribee Catchment to create a sustainable future. Grow West's vision is to rejuvenate 10,000 hectares of land by connecting the Brisbane Ranges National Park, Werribee Gorge State Park and Lerderderg State Park through a mosaic of restoration works on private property.

This year’s Grow West Biodiversity Photographic Exhibition goes online to celebrate the beauty and wonder of local environment, showcasing an amazing array of animals and plants of the upper Werribee Catchment.  A big thank you goes out to Moorabool Shire Council and the team at the Lerderderg Library for making this happen.

About the artists:

This year’s collection features photographs by three talented local photographers; Bernie McRitchie, Chris Lindorff and David Whelan who have been taking photos for many years of the flora and fauna in the local area. Their love of nature is shown through the lens of a camera and how they capture the beauty and wonder of the natural environment in all its splendor.
