Volunteers play a large part in helping to restore native vegetation of the Hunter estuary.
Since 1995 over 200,000 trees and shrubs have been planted. If you have time, come along to one of our volunteer days.

Bush Regeneration:

Our bush regeneration groups work on the Ash Island site and focuses on specific weeds starting from the non-weedy areas of either rainforest remnants or revegetated areas and working back into the more weedy areas.
As the canopy of an area develops it is easier to control most weeds.


Other volunteer opportunities include:

  • City Farm Community Garden
  • Administration
  • Communications Support
  • Site Maintenance
  • Monitoring
  • Plant Propagation
