Based in the Shire of Kalamunda, NRPG is a volunteer community organisation founded in 1989 to preserve our native bushland. In addition, our volunteer Friends groups adopt areas of bushland, and working with the Shire, remove weed species and in encourage native flora and fauna species back to the areas.
