Join up

This volunteer bush regeneration group has had a big impact on the health of Wambina Nature Reserve and its rainforest gullies. Their weeding work has preserved the threatened scrub turpentine, an evergreen rainforest tree. When you volunteer with this group, you’ll help the reserve stay weed-free, so this tree and other native plants can flourish.

The reserve is at the headwaters of Erina Creek, and is a mix of open forest and lowland temperate rainforest, near Matcham. It’s a birdwatcher’s paradise and a great place to do bushcare work. You’ll meet people with similar interests, all while you support the community and learn about the reserve’s environment.

The group works once a month, all year round. It’s a great activity for people who have some gardening knowledge, but you don’t have to be an experienced gardener to join in. You’ll be given training by the group convenor or NSW National Parks staff.

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