Is Spending More Time Outside Your New Year’s Resolution?

Published on Tuesday, 3 January 2023 at 3:28:10 PM

Do you love living in the South West, surrounded by beautiful bushland? Are you passionate about the environment and want to leave a positive legacy for future generations?

The City of Busselton are looking for a team of volunteers to help care for City managed reserves. There are 15 existing environmental volunteer groups (Friends of Reserves groups) across the district, so the groups are never far from home. 

Accompanied by City Environmental Officers, Volunteers will learn how to identify native flora and fauna, weeds and learn how to care for native ecosystems. There is opportunity to care for multiple reserves, such as Ambergate and Carbanup Reserves. These two reserves support a multitude of endangered flora and fauna and represent snapshots into the Busselton district prior to clearing.

Volunteer tasks could include planting, weeding, grant applications, maintaining paths and brushing. A general level of fitness is required, with vests (and tools) to be provided by the City. It is recommended to wear long pants, enclosed shoes, gloves and a hat. There are no commitment expectations, you are welcome to join us every day or once a month, it is completely up to you. 

If you would like to make volunteering in the bush your New Year’s Resolution or if there is a Friends of Reserve Group in your neighbourhood, please contact City of Busselton Environmental Officer Joe Caspersz-Loney at joe.caspersz-loney@busselton.wa.gov.au or 9781 0444.
