Bush Regeneration

Centennial Parklands' dedicated bush regeneration volunteers are currently helping us with three unique conservation projects.

The team has been assisting professional bush regenerators and staff with a range of tasks, and a mix of bush regeneration and revegetation methods depending upon the project and on a need basis; including invasive weed removal, soil stimulation, seed collection, seed propagation, planting and watering.

The changes that result from bush regeneration are best measured over months and years, rather than days and weeks. Good outcomes occur when a continual commitment to removing weeds is made to a project over time. 

Some of the benefits of volunteering on environmental projects include:

 
  • It's a fantastic way to connect with like-minded people and the environment

  • Improving your health and wellbeing

  • It's a practical way to improve the natural environment

  • Learning new skills and improve knowledge in native plant, weed identification and control methods.

Bush Regeneration Volunteers are required to:

  • Understand the goals and objectives of the volunteer group

  • Work positively and cooperatively within a diverse group

  • Work unsupervised and as part of a team depending upon the project.

On the day you will need preferably long sleeves and long trousers, water sturdy enclosed shoes, wide-brimmed hat and sunscreen. We supply tools, gloves and morning tea.

Anyone can become a bush regeneration volunteer

No experience is necessary, just a passion for conservation and getting your hands dirty.
Good physical fitness is also required – bush regeneration can be hard work.
