Croydon Conservation Society is a non profit community volunteer group, who since 1964 have been actively “conserving” the best of our local environment for us all to share, as well as planting native species in many locations to keep us and our local native inhabitants alive and flourishing!

CCS has no allegiances to any businesses, or other specific interest groups. We do have group membership in the Australian Conservation Foundation. We receive some administrative funding through Maroondah Councils “community groups” funding, for which we are very grateful.
