Berkeley, Oct 9th 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.
Campbelltown, Oct 12th and 3 other dates
Despite its suburban nature Campbelltown is home to an important population of up to 500 koalas. Join our koala conservation team working with the local council undertaking bush re-generation works to improve Peter Meadows reserve – a known koala hot-spot on the edge of suburbia and the bushland of the Georges River.

Tahmoor, Oct 20th and 3 other dates
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 Conservation Volunteers Australia have helped local councils to restore key koala habitat within the Wingecarribee and Campbelltown LGAs, as well as collect critical data on the local koala population.
Now, join CVA in the next phase of this exciting program as we move onto the Wollondilly Shire and help us replicate this effort to conserve the elusive koalas of this region.
On the third Friday of every month we will meet in the morning to help improve koala habitat through bush re-generation activities, and then engage in citizen science by surveying for koalas and their scats.
This is an amazing opportunity to both enhance the habitat of an iconic threatened species and contribute to survey work on a virtually un-studied population of koalas, which is critical in helping understand their distribution & needs.

Kurnell, November 2nd
Kamay Botany Bay National Park
Sheer sandstone cliffs dominate the park's dramatic coastline, making for a beautiful view. In spring and summer, spectacular displays of wildflowers on the heath attract a variety of nectar eating birds. During the winter months, migrating whales are regularly seen making their northerly voyage and may again be spotted heading south in the Spring. The Kurnell peninsula supports a number of endangered species, including the Green and Golden Bell frog and the Little Tern. 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 take part in a significant project to revitalise the "meeting place" by helping to restore connection to country and bringing back the original habitat as surveyed by Captain Cook`s botanists, Banks and Solander. Tasks will include weeding large areas of invasive plants such as asparagus fern for future planting activities.
Lismore, November 22nd
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.
