The Friends of Trigg Bushland (Inc) group, or FoTB, was incorporated at a public meeting in 1990 following several years of informal operation. FoTB actively contributes to the implementation of the Management Plan for Trigg Bushland with the City of Stirling.
FoTB conducts quarterly guided walks through different parts of the bushland, collects seeds, remove weeds and rubbish and assists with bush regeneration. We also provide opinions and advice to the City of Stirling who are the managers of Trigg Bushland.
FoTB has two general meetings a year where all members and the public are invited to attend, usually with a guest speaker. Details are on our meetings page.
The executive committee of FoTB meets regularly and produces an email newsletter and a calendar of events. New members are encouraged. Urban bushland areas are under constant pressure and need your help.
The objects of the Friends of Trigg Bushland are:
- conserve and rehabilitate the natural environment,
- value passive recreation and educational use,
- preserve the tranquility of the reserve,
- cooperate with related organisations in respect of conservation,
- make representations to local, state and national government and other bodies on matters deemed to be in the interest of the users of Trigg Bushland,
- develop a high level of public participation in all projects associated with these objectives, and
- maintain formal contact with the City of Stirling.
