Friends of Grasslands' primary publication is the newsletter, News of Friends of Grasslands. It is produced five or six times a year and provides a wealth of information on what we are up to, plus educational articles including reports and summaries of workshops, visits and submissions. The newsletter is posted free to members and is also available by email. You can help by preparing articles, and by joining the select group of people who prepare the printed copies for posting - see activities for time and place of the next 'stuffing night'. Archived copies can be downloaded from the website.
In addition to the printed newsletter, an electronic bulletin, the E-bulletin, is emailed to members, usually bi-monthly. It includes the latest calendar of forthcoming FoG and other events.
FoG conducts irregular on-line presentations and gets reports from members. See the reports page for more.
