Spoon Bay is in a beautiful part of the NSW Central Coast. When you volunteer for this bush regeneration work, you’ll be removing weeds and rubbish, and doing some minor walking track maintenance in the northern area of Wamberal Lagoon Nature Reserve. It’s important work – because of volunteers’ efforts, there’s now minimal weed invasion in the reserve. When you volunteer, you'll be making a real contribution the health of this environment. Specifically, you’ll be helping us protect vulnerable paperbark trees.

Everyone’s welcome, from experienced gardeners to beginners. You’ll be given training by the group convenor of NSW National parks staff. You learn a lot about the reserve and its environment, and you’ll be supporting your local community. You’ll also build your fitness and make like-minded friends in the volunteer group. We work in an area near the end of Spoon Bay Road at Forresters Beach.

Wear closed-in shoes, long-sleeve clothing, a hat and sunscreen. Bring along a raincoat, snacks, lunch, drinking water and your gardening gloves. Tools and hard hat supplied.
