If you’re interested in volunteer work involving bush regeneration in Sydney Harbour National Park, then the Nielsen Park bush regeneration group might be for you.
This volunteer group meets in picturesque Nielsen Park in Vaucluse every Tuesday morning to remove weeds and regenerate sites where Australian native plants occur naturally.
The main objective of the group is to protect 2 Australian native plants in particular: the Nielsen Park she-oak and the sunshine wattle.
Join up as a volunteer to enjoy spectacular harbour views while also being actively involved in the preservation of Sydney’s gorgeous natural shoreline.
You don’t need to have any experience – there’ll be plenty of guidance and support – and all tools are provided. Please contact us for more information about this great Sydney-based volunteering opportunity.
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.
