Fresh air, exercise and wonderful people - Volunteer opportunities this July/August.

Each season brings a different kind of enjoyment when out in the bush. The sights and smells, and living things to be found in winter in our local reserves and green spaces are special to experience. If you are looking for an opportunity to get out and about, give back and get some healthy exercise - there are plenty of working bees and planting days coming up this July and August.
