You don’t have to be a weeding specialist to get involved in volunteer work at Minnamurra Rainforest. Join local experts and like-minded volunteers for bush regeneration in Budderoo National Park.
- Bush regeneration, weed and pest management
1st Tuesday of every month (weather permitting), between 9am and 3pm, for a minimum of 2 hours at a time.
- Budderoo National Park
Spend a few hours each month helping protect the beautiful pocket of Illawarra subtropical rainforest that is Minnamurra Rainforest. You’ll quickly develop skills in plant species identification and weeding methods. Your volunteer work will be rewarded with visible results, along with organised activities such as group night walks in the rainforest.
Budderoo National Park is located between Kiama and Kangaroo Valley and is only an hour’s drive (50km) from Wollongong, making it easily accessible. Morning tea is provided for all volunteers, so you can take a break from work to enjoy a refreshment while mingling with your fellow volunteers.
So, if you’re interested in bush regeneration of an important NSW biodiversity hotspot, contact Friends of Minnamurra Rainforest. It's a good idea to wear a long-sleeved top and thick long pants (gaiters optional) when you volunteer.
