Friends of Grasslands
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.
20th Anniversary Celebrations
FoG turns 20 in 2014. We are organising several events. It would be lovely to see you at one or more of these events. We are hoping to get in touch with some previous members also, so if you have kept in touch with anyone that we should contact, that would be great. More information will emerge but here’s a heads up.
Other 20th Anniversary events include:
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.
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.
