Friends of Woodlands Historic Park is a group of people who volunteer to help conserve, restore and interpret the history and biodiversity of Woodlands Historic Park.
Friends of Woodlands Historic Park meets on the first Saturday of every month except January. Activities include:
- Revegetation (planting of trees, shrubs, grasses or other indigenous plants).
- Growing indigenous plants in our own nursery.
- Control of environmental weeds.
- Construction and maintenance of visitor facilities.
- Construction and maintenance of fences.
Some members also work in the park at other times. In particular, the weeks after Christmas are a peak time for nursery work and seed collection.
The Friends members often lead walking groups through the park.
How to Find Us
It is best to contact us if you are planning to come and work with us, as we sometimes change the date if it falls on a long weekend. We meet at the Park Depot, 1055 Somerton Road Greenvale, at 9.45 am. If coming from the direction of Mickleham Road the entrance is on the left after Providence Road. If coming from the direction of Oaklands Road, it is on the right just after Moonee Ponds Creek.
