Environmental Friends Groups

Scores of local volunteers in Friends groups look after our precious natural environment every week or month - year in, year out. Frankston City is one of the most fortunate municipalities in Victoria, with 14 active Friends groups working with council to look after our natural reserves. They help control weeds, assist with revegetation, monitor the health of waterways and bush land and help educate local students and community groups about the natural environment.

These environmental heroes are always in need of helpers. If you would like to do something practical to help look after your local natural reserve - every once in a while or regularly - then contact a Friends Group near you! Some meet on weekends, some during week days, and all would love more helpers.

If you're not able to help in a physical way "on the ground" there are still many other types of assistance that are appreciated. Why not give them a call and see how you can join in?

Below is a list of the Environmental Friends Groups. Many of the these groups have their own Websites. Follow the links below to find out more about the reserves and the Friends that help look after them.

Photos Wanted of Frankston City’s beautiful Natural Reserves!

FEFN currently has a display of photos at the Frankston Library throughout June. But they are still after more photos that show the beauty and magic of these special places, past and present.

Post your favourite pictures of these places on the Frankston Environmental Friends Network Facebook page or email your photo to them. The best photos will be displayed at their next FEFN Photo Display at the Mayor’s Picnic in September.
