2024 Calendar Of Activities

For all Friends of the Prom activities, please register your attendance on the Parks Victoria volunteer portal ParkConnect.

When signing up for an activity on ParkConnect, please remember that most FOTP activities do not appear in the general list of volunteer activities on the Home Page, and you will need to navigate to the FOTP page by first clicking My activities and groups and then Friends of the Prom Inc under Groups I am a member of. There you will find all current FOTP activities under Upcoming activities
Please remember also that it is a requirement of Parks Victoria that all volunteers over 18 years old require a current Working With Children Check (how to apply for a Volunteer WWCC), and on signing up for an activity you will be asked to acknowledge that you have a WWCC. There has been some confusion about whether Employee WWCCs and Teacher VIT card can be registered on ParkConnect and Parks Victoria assures that they can. The attached document shows you how to upload your WWCC.

  • Our main activity is a beach clean-up, and we also need a few people to build more tree guards. 
  • Official Clean-up Australia Day is on Sunday 2 March.
  • The beach clean-up is our annual contribution to Clean-up Australia Day. We will form a number of groups to patrol Prom beaches, picking up any rubbish we find and making sure not to disturb nesting shore birds like the Hooded Plover.

Friends of the Prom Nursery

Nursery visits take place every second Thursday at the Friends of the Prom native plant nursery, situated in the Parks Victoria works yard at Tidal River.

Volunteers propagate plants and seedlings from seeds and cuttings collected at the Prom. The seedlings are used for various restoration and maintenance projects at the Prom, including the Prom Sanctuary project and the  revitalisation of the Visitor Centre at Tidal River.

Please register your attendance in  ParkConnect or phone Mary Walker on 0408 530 638.

Grazer monitoring

Are you interested in a day out in the remote and lovely open grasslands area of the northern Prom, identifying, counting and recording animal pellets? The pellet counts are part of a scientific research project to obtain data for estimating the population trends  of native and feral grazing animals on the Yanakie Isthmus in the Prom National Park – all part of the effort to restore the Coastal Grassy Woodland habitat. Volunteers visit the sampling sites to identify, count, record and clear animal pellets. 

We have completed counts for 2023 and will resume in autumn 2024  – dates to be advised.
