Do you want experience propogating plants and working in nurseries? Then we have the project for you!
Alligator Creek State School Nursery is full of plants propagated by our dedicated volunteers. Come along for a day of collecting seeds at the Hay Point Foreshore and propagating plants/grasses which will be used at the Hay Point Foreshore rehabilitation. Learn the ins and outs of all the stages, from collecting seeds in the field, to avoiding the 'J' root, to when the trees are ready to out-plant.
Conservation Volunteers accommodation is not available on this project, but all levels of tourist accommodation are available in Mackay, from backpacker hostels to high-quality hotels. A team leader collects local and visiting volunteers daily from pick-up points in the city.
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.
Hope to see you there!
