Join up

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.
