Volunteer day for HOPPERS CROSSING SECONDARY COLLEGE STUDENTS ONLY @ Wyndham Vale
Terrick Terrick, June 26th
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.

Ingham, Jul 3rd and 1 other date
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.

Join the team as we work with the South Burnett Regional Council to build gabion baskets to prevent erosion. On the site of erosion control, an extremely rare tree species (Phebalium Distans) is found and we will aid in this species protection. For this week you will learn valuable construction skills, learn basic natural resource management and meet people from all over the world! Sign up now to save your spot and come along with the team for the week !

These 5 days will provide valuable assistance to National Parks and The Hunter Bird Observers Club to manage this important international migratory bird nesting site. Tasks may include planting, weed control and sand raking. This project is supported by Port of Newcastle. While working on site you will see many species of nesting birds with views of the Hunter River Estuary.
Tyrendarra, July 3rd
The beautiful Fitzroy River flows east by south, through Heywood then between the western edge of the Tyrendarra lava flow and the Mount Clay escarpment, and thence across a coastal plain. The river is joined by two minor tributaries before reaching its estuary or river mouth and emptying into Portland Bay southeast of Tyrendarra. The river descends 138 metres over its 58-kilometres
Many areas on the banks of the Fitzroy river have previously been fenced off and revegetated by the Glenelg Hopkins CMA in partnership with local landholders. Over time some of these planting have been colonised by local weed species, so its now timely to conduct some maintenance activities to ensure the desitred indigenous vegetation continues to thrive.

Brookfield Conservation Park, Jul 8th and 2 other dates
Brookfield Conservation Park, located 128km from Adelaide, provides one of the last safe-havens for Southern Hairy-nosed Wombats. Conservation activities to re-establish native grassland areas provide vital food for the wombat. In addition, the research station at Brookfield CP enables scientists, students and volunteers to better understand the devastating effects of the emerging health issue of the wombats and assist in developing long term management strategies.
One of only 2 hairy-nosed wombat species in the world, the Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat is a state faunal emblem and local icon. Vital habitat restoration activities and important research at Brookfield Conservation Park will assist the species to overcome challenges and ensure that the wombat's do indeed have a Wild Future in South Australia.
This project is funded by the Global Giving program. Generous donations through this program have provided the support we need for these activities to occur.
Come along, meet like-minded people and help with surveying of wildlife and vegetation, as well as park maintenance including fencing and weed management. Join our team of volunteers in activities which are focused on protecting the wombats and their habitat.

Clevedon, July 10th
This week Conservation Volunteers will visit Waitawa Regional Park, one of Auckland's Southern Parks where we will be carrying out a range of vital conservation activities.
Each of the Southern Parks of Auckland are varied and unique. Waitawa Regional Park is one of Auckland Councils most recent acquisitions and is being transformed into a recreational park with large areas of land being returned to native bush. Waitawa is located on the shores of the Hauraki Gulf and enjoys views out to Waiheke Island and beyond to Coromandel.
Activities we are likely to be helping out with here are planting, weed control, track construction and maintenance, beach clean ups, tidying amenity gardens and mulching.
For more information on this project please call Conservation Volunteers on 0800 56 76 86 or email email@example.com
Jewells, Jul 10th and 2 other dates
This unique site represents the only possibility for Lake Macquarie to have a large-scale beach-fronting, yet close-to-suburbia community asset which combines valuable remnant ecological zones with potential for a diversity of public recreation and tourism. In combination with Lake Macquarie wetlands, its complex of seven wetlands could well, in time, qualify for Ramsar classification, as the site is visited by migratory species from Siberia and east Asia (China, Korea and Japan). CVA will assist the local community group with planting, weed control and other tasks.
