- Bush regeneration, weed and pest management
One Sunday morning a month
- Colongra Swamp Nature Reserve
- Medium. You'll be doing weeding and other physical activities, medium level of fitness required.
You don’t have to be an expert gardener to volunteer for this bush regeneration activity, just willing to learn. Our volunteers have contributed greatly to the health of Colongra Swamp Nature Reserve. Because of their work, there’s minimal weed invasion in the reserve.
Come along and join in with our bush regen group, which meets once a month on a Sunday morning. Volunteers do weeding and some revegetation. They also record observations of habitat and natural life within the park.
You’ll work alongside like-minded people and make new friends, all while improving the habitats of the funghi, plants and wildlife of the coastal wetlands by the lake. It’s also a great chance to learn about your local environment, while contributing to its preservation for the future.
Full training will be provided by the group’s convenor or NPWS staff. Wear closed-in shoes, a long-sleeved shirt and a hat. Bring sunscreen, a raincoat, snacks, lunch, drinking water and gardening gloves. All tools and hard hat supplied.
Following this season's unprecedented bushfires, you can register your interest to help the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and the Saving our Species program rehabilitate and protect our threatened animals and plants.
Australia is home to more than 500,000 animal and plant species, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. Saving our Species is a statewide conservation program that addresses the growing number of Australian animals and Australian native plants facing extinction.
