Friends of Grasslands
The 2015 FoG Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 17 March from 5.30 pm to 8pm, at the Conservation Council offices, Barry Drive (Lena Karmel Lodge), Civic, Canberra. All members of FoG are invited to attend - and to join the committee if you would like to be more involved in FoG. No experience or specific knowledge about grasslands is required, just enthusiasm and a wish to participate more. All interested members will go to to dinner afterwards at a nearby restaurant.

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.
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.
