Bush For Life Field Volunteer – Group Activities

Environment & Conservation One off - an event South Australia SA

About this opportunity

Bush For Life empowers and connects the community to enjoy, advocate and care for our precious bushland. We support people to make a positive on-ground impact, creating an environmental legacy and giving hope for the future. Bushcare (Bush For Life) sites are located around the Adelaide metropolitan area, Mount Lofty Ranges, the mid-North, Fleurieu Peninsula and across to Murray Bridge. Bushcare is a practice that encourages natural regeneration by removing isolated weeds that compete with our native plants for space, food & water.

There are 1-2 Bush Action Team (BAT) days running each week. Each BAT will run from 9am – 3.30pm. Catch our bus from our Brooklyn Park Office or from designated pick up points en route, or meet us on site. You are welcome to come for half a day if you wish, but you will need to organise your own transport.

The activity would be suitable for anybody who is in general good health, there is no heavy work, but there is bending and squatting involved as well as walking a short distance to the site over uneven ground.

Additional requirements

Please Note:
* During the Covid-19 pandemic, organisations should be providing all necessary Covid-19 safety protection measures for volunteers following the advice of both the State or Territory Governments and the Federal Government. Your safety and wellbeing is your priority. Familiarise yourself with the most up-to-date requirements and advice from the Australian and NT and SA State Governments.
* As each organisation provides different levels/types of insurance, volunteers are reminded to check with the organisation as to the type of insurance provided for volunteers (e.g. Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance).

Time Required

Days run from 9am – 3.30pm. However, half-day options are available to those making their own way to the activity. There is no commitment to volunteering with the Bush For Life Program, however, if you are enjoying the Bush Action Team days and would like to volunteer more regularly, locally, or want a more flexible schedule, then the next step would be to attend a Bushcare workshop.
