Are you interested in horticulture? Join us as a Conservation Volunteer and come along to our seed collection days!
When we revegetate sites, it is important to use local plants that are able to survive and thrive in the harsh environment. We spend a half day collecting seeds from the coasts and creeks to grow at our local nurseries.
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.
Contact us at 4951-0933 for specific times and meeting points. Hope to see you there!
