Join up

Bateau Bay is a gorgeous area in the Wyrrabalong National Park south precinct. When you join this volunteer group, you’ll help improve the native vegetation along the beachfront and dunes at Bateau Bay. Over the years, volunteers have significantly reduced the presence of bitou bush at Bateau Bay, and new volunteers are always welcome.

It’s great if you have gardening experience, but you don’t need to be an expert take part, just willing to learn. You’ll receive full training from the group’s convenor or NSW National Parks staff.

The group works one Thursday morning a month, all year round, in an area near the Rushby Street intersection with Reserve Drive, Bateau Bay. It’s a great chance to engage with your local community, learn about your local environment and help protect it. You’ll also build your fitness and make new friends as you work along the beach.

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.
