Finch Hatton 4756, April 23rd
Come build a Butterfly Garden with Conservation Volunteers Australia!
Out at Finch Hatton State School, CVA is building a butterfly garden. The native habitat around the school is quite degraded, and our volunteers will be on this project from day one! The first step will be preparing the site by removing the invasive weeds. We will also be building a small nursery to locally propagate desirable plants for butterflies. Next we will be planting the trees, shrubs, and creepers that attract butterflies. Finally we will be visiting the site over the course of several months to check on it and maintain it.
Come and join us to learn about which native plants attract butterflies, which plants are considered weeds, and all the skills you need to build your very own butterfly garden!
Mirani, Apr 26th and 2 other dates
Wetlands are vital to the Great Barrier Reef. They reduce the impacts of floods, absorb pollutants and provide habitat for animals and plants.
Wetlands are important in other ways as well. They purify water and form nurseries for fish and other freshwater and marine life. Because of this, they are important to Australia's commercial and recreational fishing industries as well.
Conservation Volunteers Australia planted native trees at the iconic Demoleyns Lagoon, a beautiful freshwater lagoon situated approximately 40minutes from Mackay, in between Mirani and Marian in the picturesque Pioneer Valley on World Water Day and now they need maintaining.
Additionally, we are collecting some baseline information of the state of the lagoon to compare future images to.
Activities include photography, mapping with a GIS unit, watering, hand weeding and other activities to help the new trees grow.
Join us today to contribute towards restoring an endangered wetland that provides important habitat refuge for wildlife in a predominantly agricultural area!

Ingham, Apr 30th and 4 other dates
This is a new and exciting project for CVA, based in the Ingham area approximately 1 hour from Townsville and 3 hours from Cairns. This is an ONE REEF PROGRAM - an initiative of CVA that harnesses the strength of partners, communities and volunteers to repair and reinstate priority wetlands and catchments of the Great Barrier Reef through the delivery of on-ground practical action, education, training, community engagement and volunteering. ONE REEF is focused on mobilising community to make a tangible and practicable on-ground difference to the health and resilience of the Great Barrier Reef by restoring catchments and improving water quality.
pportunity to positively impact the health of the Great Barrier Reef. In partnership with Greening Australia, and the Australian Government, Conservation Volunteers Australia will be undertaking revegetation activities at Palm Creek. We will be collecting seed, planting trees and removing weeds in an effort to improve water quality entering the Great Barrier Reef. Addittional activities may include water quality monitoring, marine debris clean ups and surveys, fencing and experimental wetland restoration methods.
The Ingham area which remains relatively undiscovered by tourism despite the tropical riches it has to offer, from ancient cultures and rainforests to stunning beaches and coral reefs. With its warm weather and unique wildlife, the region is an ideal destination for anyone who wants to volunteer in beautiful habitats away from hordes of holidaymakers.
Volunteers need to bring and wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, boots or sturdy shoes, and a broad-brimmed hat. It is also recommended that volunteers bring and use sun-screen (30+) and tropical-strength insect repellent. Much of the site is sloping and not suitable for people with mobility problems.

Ballina, May 1st and 12 other dates
Conservation Volunteers Australia are partnering with dedicated landholders and community volunteers to restore 4 hectares of nationally threatened Lowland Rainforest, through planting with 10,000 native tubestock over three years. This project will also enhance the riparian corridor of the Wilson River and secure the future for resident koalas and many other native fauna species.
The first stage starts in March with a target of 3,500 trees to be planted by July. Can we do it? Join us and make it happen!
Hamilton, May 1st
Jon us on a 6km walk around the Eastern Barred Bandicoot Enclosure in Hamilton. We will be looking for all signs of wildlife along this walk including sightings, prints, tracks and signs. Better still, you will help the Eastern Barred Bandicoot by helping check the parimetre fence.
If you have a paticular interest please let us know before you arrive.
The Eastern Barred Bandicoot is a small, nocturnal marsupial that rests in a shallow, grass lined nest during the day and comes out to forage at night on a variety of invertebrates, such as worms, grubs and beetles.
Eastern Barred Bandicoots were once widespread across the grasslands and grassy woodlands of western Victoria, extending into the south-east corner of South Australia. Widespread decline of the species occurred across Victoria, primarily due to a combination of predation by introduced foxes and habitat loss. By the 1970’s, the subspecies could only be found in Hamilton, but this population was also declining.
In 1989, the Eastern Barred Bandicoot was on the brink of extinction, this led to the formation of a multi-organisational Recovery Team that coordinated a recovery program focusing on predator control, habitat management and captive breeding.
Geelong, May 2nd and 8 other dates
Come join Conservation Volunteers in assiting with the protection of many different environments around the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula.
Partnering with the City of Greater Geelong you will undertake many programs to manage and protect biodiversity in our local coastlines, waterways, wetlands, bush and native grasslands.
Berkeley, May 2nd and 1 other date
Hooka Point is a regeneration site with small but precious remnants of coastal salt marsh at the mouth of Hooka Creek. Predominantly consisting of revegetation due to the historic use as grazing land, the area is a great example of what can be achieved in an urban environment. Our visits will target the removal of environmental weeds along the foreshore of Lake Illawarra, and facilitate the provision of habitat and connectivity to other remnant vegetation.
Terrick Terrick, May 7th and 1 other date
Come join Conservation Volunteers as we help conserve the picturesque Terrick Terrick National Park in Northern Victoria.
Mt Terrick Terrick is a low granite outcrop that rises above the surrounding flat riverine plains at Mitiamo. This hill, and two others, and the surrounding flat land are covered in bushland and flat grasslands. Together, the granite outcrops, surrounding open forest, and indigenous grassland plains form the core of the Terrick Terrick National Park. The park protects one of the last areas of undisturbed vegetation in Northern Victoria.
In recent years, a number of outlying paddocks of native grassland were added to the National Park. These grasslands, and others inside the main body of the Park, are home to several species of plant which are rare and threatened in the region. They are also home to the largest known colony of the endangered Plains-wanderer. The Plains-wanderer is a small bird that resembles the Button Quail. The Plains-wanderer demands native grasses, daisies and grassland tall enough to conceal it from predators, making the Terrick Terrick grasslands a highly important area.
Volunteers will assist in helping to protect the grasslands from species such as Wheel Cactus, Box Thorn and Bathurst Burr. Also over the course of the project, volunteers will assit with biomass management for the protection of the Plains- Wanderer by maintaining and pulling down fences and fixing stock yards. Other tasks will include helping to maintain visitor facilities such as walking track clearing, road maintenance and picnic area maintenance.
If you would like any more information please email Bendigo@conservationvolunteers.com.au or call our Bendigo office on 03 5444 0777.
Bookham, May 7th
Travelling Stock Reserves (TSRs) are an important part of our cultural and natural heritage. We will be planting some native trees and shrubs at the Bookham TSR, so come and help to maintain an important bit of public land!
