Join up

By volunteering with NSW National Parks at Bouddi National Park, you can help to remove weeds and restore Australian native plants.

Join us for volunteer work in open forest and heathland environments, removing invasive weeds such as bitou bush, cassia, lantana and asparagus fern at MacMasters Beach.

Your efforts to eradicate these weeds will encourage growth of Australian native plants and, in turn, protect and restore habitat for Australian animals and Australian birds native to the area such as:

  • Yellow-bellied glider
  • Sugar glider
  • Powerful owl
  • Glossy black cockatoo

This volunteering activity takes place behind Beachview Esplanade at MacMasters Beach.

Training, support and tools are all provided. NSW National Parks Mourawaring Moors bushcare looks forward to having you along. Please contact us for more information about this volunteering opportunity.

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.
