Bouddi National Park
Are you a local or occasional visitor to Bouddi National Park, and want to help protect Australian native plants there? Volunteer with Wagstaffe bushcare twice a year for a blitz on rubbish and weeds.
- Bush regeneration, weed and pest management
Twice a year
- Bouddi National Park
- Medium. You'll be weeding and doing physical activities. Medium level of fitness required.
Wagstaffe bushcare invites you to volunteer to help us control weeds and clear out rubbish in the Wagstaffe area of Bouddi National Park.
Weeding and rubbish removal encourages the regeneration of the forest and other Australian native plants that provide the habitat for endangered species of Australian animals and birds.
You'll learn a lot about your local environment and protecting native plants and animals. Training and tools are provided, as are fresh air, like-minded company and the opportunity for a bit of exercise. You'll feel a great sense of achievement from this work. It's great if you have some gardening knowledge, but beginners with a desire to learn are very welcome too.
Wear closed-in shoes, long-sleeve clothing and a hat. It's a good idea to bring sunscreen, a raincoat, drinking water, snacks, lunch, gardening gloves and insect repellant. Tools and hard hat supplied.
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.
