Friends of Grasslands
FoG AGM postponed
Friends of Grasslands' 2020 Annual General Meeting has been postponed to a date to be fixed, in part because of unavailability of the meeting room. More information.
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 2020 application form is available from the Supported Projects Grants information page. If you wish to register your interest, or you have any queries, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
