Park Stewardship Volunteer program commences

Park Stewardship Volunteer program commences

Posted: 18 May 2021

This year our volunteer Park Stewards will explore Albury’s Environmental Lands while undertaking various bush restoration activities alongside Parklands Rangers.  

The Park Stewardship Program is covering a variety of environmental stewardship tasks, working in the beautiful bush parks around Albury.

Volunteers are welcome to come along for 2 hours on a Wednesday morning (9.30am to 11.30am) and experience the 'how to' of caring for our bush parks and reserves. 

Parklands Rangers will lead practical park maintenance/improvement tasks like planting, weeding, checking nestboxes and removing old fencing. All tools and any specific safety equipment needed are supplied.

At the same time, volunteers will learn about the local environment and how our local land managers and community groups are working to protect threatened species, improve habitat and link habitat corridors across the region.

This is invaluable experience for those interested in, or studying for, an environmental career; a great chance to clear your head and get some exercise, or just a good way to give back to our community.

Weekly Wednesday morning sessions will rotate between Lavington, Springdale Heights, Thurgoona and East Albury. See our Events listings for details and meeting places for each session.

Volunteers will need to bring drinking water and wear covered shoes (preferably boots), long pants, long sleeves and a hat.

Please register! Sometimes things change at the last minute and we need to be able to contact volunteers. Please register at https://forms.gle/AMNcgGrmfbAc8vsWA
