OFF History

History

Oatley Flora and Fauna Society (O.F.F) was formed in 1955 by local residents concerned about the vandalism of flora and fauna in Oatley Park, a bush land reserve in Sydney, metropolitan area.

 

 

Over the years the area of interest has expanded and the primary aims of the Society are to stimulate interest in Australian flora and fauna; foster an understanding of the need to conserve natural environment and cooperate with other organisations in protecting the environment.
