Volunteer opportunities

There are many ways to connect, conserve and protect the environment. One way is through on-ground action with a local volunteer group, helping with activities like weeding, seed collection, monitoring and surveys, and revegetation plantings.

5 ways to find volunteering opportunities in the Northern and Yorke region:

  1. Contact local Environment Centres: Reach out to the Barossa Bush Gardens, Gawler Environment Centre, or the Mount Pleasant NRC for advice on local environmental programs you can join.
  2. Explore citizen science and Waterwatch programs: Visit the Citizen Science website or join our Waterwatch Program, which offers a variety of projects across the region.
  3. Visit environmental groups online: Check out local groups like Friends of Parks SA, National Landcare Directory, Trees for Life, Conservation Australia and Volunteering SA for opportunities.
  4. Join the rewilding team: Volunteer with the Marna Banggara project to monitor malleefowl or participate in camera trapping analysis of predator animals.
  5. Start your own group: If there's an environmental issue you're passionate about, consider starting your own group through Landcare SA

You can also sign up to our Yakka newsletter to keep up-to-date with volunteer activities.
