Parks & Wildlife Environmental Volunteers - Friends of Glass House Mountains

Environment & Conservation Regular - less than 6 months Glass House Mountains QLD

About this opportunity

Become a 'Friend of Parks' volunteer in the Glass House Mountains and join the team in assisting local QPWS&P Rangers with a variety of activities that benefit the many different sections of the Glass House Mountains National Park.

These tasks may include:

  •         manual weed removal
    
  •         native revegetation
    
  •         rubbish collection
    
  •         minor track maintenance
    
  •         recording of wildlife sightings, and more
    

Over time we hope the group develops a connection with the area and continues to gain knowledge and appreciation for this exceptional national park.

As a volunteer, you can expect to:

  •         make connections with like-minded people and other local environmental groups
    
  •          learn about the different ecosystems and identify native and invasive species that exist within the park; 
    
  •          gain hands-on experience with safe work methods and best practice environmental management techniques.
    
  •          enjoy being active outdoors and feel good about helping the environment.
    

This is a roving volunteer group that can meet at multiple locations around the Beerburrum, Beerwah and Glass House Mountains areas depending on the task.
