We offer a wide range of conservation projects in the metro area as well as projects in regional WA. These projects include tree planting, seed collection, endangered species protection, weed control, flora and fauna surveys, and environmental monitoring.

Volunteers wishing to be part of the team will participate in practical conservation projects and are given induction and training on all conservation tasks undertaken, along with safety training and supervision.

Volunteers start at 9am and finish around 3pm or earlier if they have prior commitments. Once volunteers have signed up a monthly volunteer program will be emailed to them detailing what the job is, where and for how long.

This is ideal for University and Tafe students that want to learn skills that will help them get industry ready. It is also great for people who are passionate about the environment and want to do their bit.

What you need for the day if you are working in the field; • Wear long sleeve shirt and long pants • Wear closed in footwear • Bring water and food
