GREENS senator-elect Janet Rice says she supports a campaign to give the Wellsford State Forest national park status. 

Ms Rice visited the forest with members of the Wellsford Forest Conservation Alliance on Saturday, as part of a listening tour of the state.

"The Greens are 100 per cent behind the campaign," she said. 

"The forest is important - not only for its conservation values but recreational purpose as well."

The alliance hopes, by making it a national park, it will be preserved for future generations. 

The City of Greater Bendigo offered its support at a council meeting in May.
