Parks & Wildlife Environmental Volunteers - Friends of Ferny Forest

Environment & Conservation Regular - less than 6 months Landsborough QLD

About this opportunity

Become a 'Friends of Ferny Forest' volunteer and help the local Rangers with a variety of activities that will benefit the much-loved mountain bike track and surrounding forest in Mooloolah River Conservation Park, at Ewen Maddock Dam.

These tasks may include:

  •          manual weed removal
    
  •          native revegetation
    
  •          rubbish collection
    
  •          mountain bike track maintenance and repairs
    
  •          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 section of Beerwah State Forest.

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.
