Friends of Hughes Grassy Woodland

The Friends of Hughes Grassy Woodland are a community group who formed with the purpose of protecting a small patch of Red Gum-Yellow Box Grassy Woodland in the suburb of Hughes. Hughes Grassy Woodland is located in between Kent and Groom Streets, and is an important ecological community- home to numerous species of native plants and two registered significant trees.

Friends of Hughes Grassy Woodland is a recipient of an ACT Environment Grant which will be used to enhance bird habitat in the woodland by planting native food plants.

If you would like to volunteer with or contact the group for more information- contact Jennifer at
