- Cudgen Nature Reserve
- Please note
- You'll need to provide your own transport to work site
- We'll provide a simple morning tea at each monthly working bee day
- There'll be a barbecue sausage sizzle on the community planting days that take place throughout the year
You'll learn how to rehabilitate weed-affected or degraded bush into a healthier community of native plants and animals. The result? Local koala communities will connect with the rehabilitated areas and choose them as their habitat.
Volunteer work includes environmental weeding and bushland regeneration, including:
- Planting and seed collecting
- Primary and secondary weeding
- Tree planting
- Track construction and maintenance.
You'll be guided on how to participate effectively as part of a team, to ensure safe bush regeneration practices at your work site.
No skills or experience required, and you'll work at your own pace. All training is provided.
It's a good idea to wear a long-sleeved shirt, trousers and lace-up boots.
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.
