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 details.

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.
