In 1990, a small group of people decided to form an association for the protection and enhancement of the Robertson area. This was the seed that developed into the Robertson Protection Society Incorporated (REPS), whose members pursue the common goal of environment protection.

The first meeting took place at Robertson Community Centre on 13 November 1990 and was well-attended, Since that time, REPS has continued to flourish, both as an environmental society and as a community group.

REPS has been the recipient of several government grants enabling it to publish various environmental education materials.
