Description

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.

Friends of Grasslands is a non profit association run by volunteers, established in 1994, incorporated in the Australian Capital Territory, registration number A 3057, ABN 64 120 946 763.

FoG is managed by a Committee which is elected at annual general meetings.

A short history of Friends of Grasslands. Find out more about FoG in a community radio interview (2SER, March 2015).

FoG is bound by a statement of values, principles, functions and objectives (constitution), under which it is governed by a Committee and Annual and ad hoc General Meetings. It has a statement of intent, FOG who we are and what we do.

Membership is open to all, both individuals and organisations. Members include people interested in conservation, landowners and managers, members of landcare and parkcare groups, professional scientists and ecologists, private and government agencies. Members come from many parts of Australia.

FoG works in partnership with a number of organisations.
