There are volunteer groups running all along the Coffs Harbour area including at Diggers Beach, Hearns Lake, Mullaway, Safety Beach, Woolgoolga Back Beach, Emerald Beach, Korora Beach, Sawtell and Sapphire Beach.

Volunteer groups do everything from dunecare on the beach, to bushcare in inland rainforests. Bush regeneration involves many activities, but the main one is weeding. The removal of weeds allows for regeneration of Australian native plants which, in turn, creates the natural habitat necessary to support native Australian animals.

By participating in this volunteer work, you’ll be in the fresh open air alongside friendly, like-minded individuals, get a bit of exercise at the same time, and help protect Coffs Harbour’s natural habitat.

Contact us to find out which group would be most suitable for you. You don’t need any experience, and you’ll receive information, training, tools and support.
