If you value the environment we live in. If you believe that working together, people have a voice, and an ability to create changes in the way we all view and treat our own “patch” of planet Earth…..

Then joining and/or volunteering your time for an organisation that is pro-active in its focus towards creating greater public awareness of the need for an appreciation and reverence for our natural resources, all of them….from the waterways around us to the flora and fauna that depend on them for their very lives, is a wonderful way to become involved in practical projects that are long-lasting and are of benefit to all life now, and future generations – All of us, ourselves, our wonderful unique wildlife, plantlife, and the habitats that we all depend on for our continued existence and well-being, because we are all connected in that we, all of us, only have one habitat…Planet Earth

What Can We Do? Hearing the Call Catchment Care Information Sheet

There are many ways to be involved

Outdoors help such as:-

  • Rubbish clearing in our lovely rivers
  • Native seed collection
  • Working at the community nurseries that supply native species for re-vegetation work
  • Water testing in the local creeks
  • Involvement with diverse projects such as frog surveys

Indoors – there is always help needed with:-

  • General office work
  • Computer data input
  • Project data recording
  • General duties such as helping to keep the office area organised and tidy.

Volunteering your time is a gift from you, and the gift you receive in return is the knowledge that you are making a difference, you are having a positive effect on what is happening in your personal environment, as well as the overall improvement and maintenance of our natural resources in general…

Whatever help is given, in whatever area, is well appreciated, and is effective towards keeping our environmental/conservation organisations working to the greater good of all…

In the spirit of Marianne Williamson’s words on shining your light… on using whatever talents you may have.

Don’t be shy about what you are good at. False modesty helps no one and, if there is something you have always wanted to try, or learn, and never previously had the chance, well, there will probably be someone who is more than willing to spend a little of their time in helping you to learn a skill, which can then be utilised in whatever projects might be in need of help at that time. It’s all about care, co-operation, and sharing our abilities, our time, our positive energies. It’s all good!

A tax deductible donation will help our organisation protect and improve the water quality and biodiversity of our creeks and rivers for all the life that depends on them. The work we do with local landowners, schools and other organisations helps ensure this will be sustainable into the future.

The creek revegetation projects absorb carbon as the new forests grow, and help offset the carbon emitted through our lifestyle impacts.
