Vision

With the longer days of summer approaching, now’s the perfect time to reconnect, recharge and feel reinvigorated by volunteering in nature. The last six months have been difficult for us all, so take the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of volunteering in parks, meet other people and get back into nature. We’ve missed you!

Goal

We are hosting a range of volunteering events so there’s something for everyone of all ages and abilities. From Q&A panels to marine and park activities, skill-based training sessions and more. Celebrate International Volunteer Day on 5 December with us. This program is funded by the Victorian Great Outdoors.

Start a group
