The Friends of Moggs Creek works in partnership with the Surf Coast Shire, is supported by Angair Inc. and is auspiced by the Friends of Eastern Otways (Great Otway National Park) Inc. It is a small but very dedicated group, which meets as required. The group is working to eradicate environmental weeds in the Moggs Creek area, replanting indigenous species where appropriate. It is hoped to restore Moggs Creek as near as possible to its original condition.
The group has worked with the Surf Coast Shire to obtain a footbridge across the Creek at the eastern end of Robyn Road, and to upgrade the entrance to the settlement at Old Coach Road. The group has also worked with GORCC and Coast Care/Coast Action to protect the estuary and to revegetate the area with indigenous flora.
On a number of occasions the group has been involved with the organisation of a large task force (up to 50 people) to clear the area of Coast Tea Tree which has invaded the settlement since the 1983 fires.
