Join CVA as we work with Greening Australia to water a planting of a threatened species of Casuarina that is being established at Coolum. The goal of this project is to provide follow up care to ensure that the planted saplings establish as mature plants. Volunteers will also be collecting soil moisture data and recording sapling survival rates and observations.

You will learn about plant identification from experienced supervisors through weeding and watering activities and have the unique opportunity to gain valuable field experience in a small team of 2 - 4 people.

This project is a great way to network and gain hands on skills for a career in conservation while making a real difference to our environment. Due to the sensitivity of this site numbers are restricted to a maximum of 3 volunteers, so bookings are essential to secure your place.

Remember to wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, enclosed shoes, a hat, sunglasses and please bring your lunch and plenty of water.
