Proceedings of the FoG 2014 Forum, Grass half full or grass half empty? Valuing native grassy landscapes, are now on the website.

Grasslands and grassy woodlands were the most extensive vegetation community in Australia two hundred years ago. Today, some grassland communities in south-eastern Australia are more threatened than Australian rainforests.  How can that be?

Friends of Grasslands ('FoG' for short) is a community group dedicated to conservation of natural temperate grassy ecosystems in south-eastern Australia. FoG advocates, educates and advises on matters to do with the conservation of grassy ecosystems, and carries out surveys and other on-ground work. FoG is based in Canberra and its members include professional scientists, landowners, land managers and interested members of the public.  

Activities and Events

FoG members help to conserve grasslands through hands-on projects, working parties, a newsletter and education work.  Current events are outlined in the FoG Calendar.


Join FoG, help grasslands and get to meet interesting and knowledgeable people.  Membership is open to everyone with an interest in grasslands.


What is a grassland and why are grasslands important?


Friends of Grasslands attempts to persuade governments and landholders to protect and conserve grasslands.
