Raising awareness about the value and use of native grasslands, seasonal wetlands, grassy woodlands & other ecosystems on the Victorian Volcanic Plains

The Friends of the Forgotten Woodlands

The Victorian Volcanic Plains Conservation Management Network supports the work of VVP friends groups and is hosting this page for Friends of the Forgotten Woodlands Inc.

This group is for anyone who especially loves Silver Banksia, Drooping Sheoak and Sweet Bursaria – or any other woodland species and focuses restoring  genetically diverse populations and seed orchards of key species that are quickly disappearing from the VVP.

Key contacts for the friends group are Bill Weatherly – President FotFW – on 5577 2551, blythvale@bigpond.com or Aggie Stevenson – Secretary FotFW – on 5571 2526, a.stevenson@ghcma.vic.gov.au
