About us

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 2 sections- section 58 is in between Kent and Groom Streets and Section 57, the area east of Kent St and running into Red Hill Nature Park . The woodland 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.
