Ballina, March 15th
Ballina Coastal Crown Reserve contains a mosaic of valuable remnant native vegetation communities including subtropical rainforest, swamp sclerophyll forest, swamp oak forest, mangrove forest and coastal saltmarsh. It provides natural habitat for native fauna species in the region. It is home to the vulnerable Grey-headed Flying Fox, Sugar Glider, and many other native species. This area has been affected by serious environmental degradation in the past and we are here to give it a helping hand and to make it an incredible place to be for the local community, recreation, education and conservation awareness.
Not only will you be helping to save and enhance this unique reserve, you will be doing so in a stunning location in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia. No prior experience is needed, just your willingness to use some elbow grease, meet some great new people and help improve an important part of the NSW Far North Coast for future generations.

The Eastern Curlew Migratory Shore Bird resting site restoration works;
This new and exciting project is here to help restore the significant resting habitat of the critically endangered Eastern Curlew migratory shore bird. Each year these incredible birds travel more than 20,000 kilometres (round trip) as part of their yearly migration. They breed as far north as arctic circle within Russia and North-eastern China, and make their way to the eastern shores of Australia to rest in summer. On this epic journey, these birds face risks from increasing pressures of coastal habitat loss along their migratory route, limited access to food and resting sites and even hunting. We are here to give them a helping hand.

La Perouse, March 20th
State Street employees only:
2016 sees the Congwong Beach sand dunes restoration project commence at La Perouse in Botany Bay in partnership with National Parks and Wildlife services. The area is a place of significance for traditional land owners the Gweagal and Kameygal with important cultural sites located within the park. A beautiful part of Botany Bay, favoured by scuba divers, snorkelers, families, travellers and residents alike. The focus of the Congwong Beach sand dunes restoration project is removal of Bitou bush from the dunes, to rehabilitate and re-establish the native vegetation. Sand dunes are vital in protecting the coast line. Not only do they provide a suitable habitat to many species, they act as a buffer against significant weather events. Plants play a pivotal role in sand dunes. It is for this reason this project is so important. The project day will include a tour of Bare Island Fort, normally restricted to the public, subject to availability. Bare Island Fort was completed in 1889 amid concerns of invasion at the time. Listed on the State Heritage Register, the fort is as an example of nineteenth century coastal military defence which almost completely intact.

This project is a unique opportunity to experience the great outdoors in the still of the night. As part of our Koala tracking program we are collecting information to compare tree species used in the night time versus the information collected in the day. A small group of volunteers will assist our team leader and research student on this important and fascinating work. A good level of fitness is required to participate in this project, you will need to walk in excess of 5km in the dark, and in dense bush terrain.
Botany, Mar 22nd and 3 other dates
Sir Joseph Banks Park is a very significant nature reserve on the Botany foreshore. It provides natural habitat for native flora and fauna species in northern Botany Bay.

Wollondilly, March 23rd
From Campbelltown to the Southern Highlands, Sydney’s South-West is home to nationally important populations of koalas virtually on the city’s doorstep and these populations are under serious threat from development & the effects of suburban sprawl.
Over the past year and a half Conservation Volunteers Australia have helped local councils to collect critical data on the local koala populations, as well as restore key koala habitat within the Wingecarribee and Campbelltown LGAs.
Now, join CVA in the next phase of this exciting program as we move onto the Wollondilly Shire (Appin) and help us replicate this effort to conserve the elusive koalas of this region.
The focus of this project day will be assisting government experts with their koala radio-tracking program by tracking collared koalas and collecting data on their location, tree species use and other habitat characteristics.
This is a fabulous opportunity to contribute to cutting edge survey work on a virtually un-studied population of koalas, which is critical in helping understand their distribution & needs. This information will be key to informing local council planning of habitat protection zones to safeguard these koala populations into the future.

Sheer sandstone cliffs dominate the park's dramatic coastline, making for a beautiful view. Our site marks the actual landing spot of the first British explorers to Australian shores and the first "meeting place" between them and the local Dharawal people in 1770. Volunteers will engage in conservation activities within the heritage listed area to revitalise the original habitat as surveyed by Captain Cook`s botanists. Tasks will include weeding large areas of invasive species for future planting activities.

Come along to help restore and maintain the Londonderry Woodland Reserve, a vital remnant of the critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland with an array of native birds, including the famous Bookook Owl. A rare site that contains mature, large trees and a creek which provide habitat and migration pathways for wildlife. By visiting the site, you can have the closest experience to what the Cumberland Plain looked like prior to European settlement. The restoration and maintenance of this area are paramount to the preservation of this unique and beautiful ecological system, so come along, have fun and get involved in bush regeneration activities, habitat improvement, flora and fauna surveys, bird watching and water quality monitoring.
Berry, March 26th
The Berry Corridors Project is part of the Great Eastern Ranges initiative to establish and protect flora and fauna passage between the escarpment and the coast in partnership with Berry Landcare. Conservation Volunteers will be assisting a range of landholders in the region to plant trees, remove invasive weeds, install fencing and monitor progress of this exciting project.
Berry is located approximately 50km South of Wollongong and is a picturesque suburb nestled beneath the escarpment of the Illawarra. With a rich history of farming in the region, there are a number of landholders on board to assist in the protection of local biodiversity. We look forward to connecting our volunteers to these places and creating refuge for our fauna in the years to come.

Vaucluse, Mar 27th and 11 other dates
Nielsen Park in Sydney’s eastern suburbs is home to one of the rarest tress of Sydney. In fact, it’s only known location is in Neilson Park itself, which runs alongside the heritage listed Greycliffe house and borders the iconic Sydney Harbour and Shark Beach. Working in conjunction with National Parks and Wildlife, we are helping to reduce the number of threats this unique plant faces. This includes undertaking various measures to reduce weed invasion in the area, habitat restoration, monitoring of the site and importantly preparing the area for controlled ecological burns.
Lismore, Mar 27th and 1 other date
We would like to invite you to be a part of our exciting new project the Lismore River Festival and Carp Muster to help improve aquatic habitat in the Richmond River catchment. Carp are introduced freshwater fish which are now prolific in most NSW river systems. These destructive bottom-feeders stir up sediments creating muddy river systems and displace native species degrading our aquatic habitats. Our goal is to educate the community on identification and knowledge of Carp as well as combining efforts with local anglers to reduce Carp numbers in the Wilsons River by catching and disposing of this invasive pest species.
Port Kembla, March 27th
The Green and Golden Bell Frog is a beautiful large frog that inhabits small pockets of the Illawarra Region. This project aims to conduct surveys to gain a better understanding on where the frog is most prevalent in the Port Kembla area, with a long term view to informing management decisions and future restoration of our unique coastal wetlands. We will conduct visual surveys and listen and record calls using the latest Frog ID App from the Australian Musuem.
