Friends of Grasslands

2020 Grassy Ecosystem Grants

As advertised in our March - April 2020 Newsletter, FOG is again offering a small number of grassy ecosystem grants of up to $1,500 each. The closing date is Monday 13 April. Applicants will be notified of the outcomes of their applications by the end of May.

Any individual or organisation may apply. A grant may be used for a small project or as part of a bigger project and may support publications, research, education, on-ground work, advocacy, publicity and/or training related to the understanding, conservation and management of native grassy ecosystems.

FOG will publicise projects it funds and, will provide what in-kind support it can offer if this is sought. Successful recipients will be asked to keep FOG informed of progress, to write up their projects for our newsletter, and, if applicable, to nominate and provide other relevant outputs.

The new 2020 application form will be available shortly and will posted on the Supported Projects Grants information page. In the meantime if you wish to register your interest, or you have any queries, please contact us at supportedprojects@fog.org.au. We can send you the application form when it is available.

More information for potential applicants

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.

Membership

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