Welcome to the Friends of the Porongurup Range
We are a not-for-profit conservation organisation proud of our participation in community activities to protect and preserve the biodiversity and ecology of the flora and fauna and unique natural history of the Porongurup region.
Porongurup Friends have a particular interest in the policies that affect the integrity of the National Heritage Listed Porongurup National Park which is geographically located at the heart of the Porongurup Community and we’ll speak out when the Range is under threat.
In addition, a committee of Friends’ volunteers manage the 511ha Twin Creeks Conservation Reserve located on the agricultural plains between the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges. When the ecological value of the farming property, which includes significant remnant vegetation and intact plant communities, was offered for sale in 2003, the Friends purchased the property with the help of extensive fund raising and community support.
Twin Creeks is part of the National Reserve System and covenanted with National Trust WA. As a result of two decades under our stewardship, the Reserve includes a mixture of protected plant communities, revegetated areas, and regrowth.
We have developed effective partnerships with the Oyster Harbour Catchment Group and nationally recognized Gondwana Link. Our aim is to ensure the integrity of the Porongurup Region including the National Park and Twin Creeks will be conserved and enjoyed by future generations.
In 2021 we celebrated three decades of continuous service as a volunteer not-for-profit organisation. To achieve our goals please consider joining us as a member of the Friends of the Porongurup Range and/or volunteer.
We acknowledge the Noongar people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and live.
We pay our respects to the Elders, past, present, and emerging and to the wider Noongar community.
