Current community and “friends of” groups
Community and “friends of” groups are a great way to meet new people while learning about the local environment. Friends groups are usually a group of people with a common interest in a particular park or reserve, that contribute to the parks management and maintenance. Activities can include tree planting, weed control, fauna surveys and water watch activities and monitoring. By joining a “Friends of” group you can assist in the management of significant natural reserves within the City of Greater Dandenong. You can find a list of groups below.
There are lots of environment websites that discuss topics like energy and global warming, water, waste, transport and air quality, and native plants and animals. You can find a good starting list below.
