If you know a Friends volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to protecting a nature reserve, waterway or place of cultural heritage now is the time to nominate them for one of this year's Best Friend Award.
Read about the extroardinary story of how Friends brought the Organ Pipes National Park back to life, the fight to save Sunbury's Jacksons Creek Valley and how the Green Army is helping out on Wirilda Track.
The Friends of Organ Pipes National Park have brought native wildlife back to a place of unique geological features just 25km from Melbourne.
Jacksons Creek Valley is home to rare Aboriginal Ceremonial Rings and protects environmentally significant species and woodland. That's why the local community is fighting for its protection from development.
The Victorian Government has released a new biodiversity strategy and along with it $1 million in community and volunteer action grants.
In this edition of FriendsNET we have a great story about Friends Groups in Indonesia, another about the value of parks in the UK and Scotland, and what to do about feral cats.
