This website showcases the volunteer environment work conducted by volunteers around the ACT, as well as act as a resource for volunteer groups and the ACT community to learn more about volunteering and how to get involved.

It presents information about the different types of volunteer opportunities and programs running in the ACT, and the benefits and values of volunteering for the environment. Scroll down to find out more about specific groups and individual volunteers, or start reading our report here.

If you’d like to chat to some one more generally about the types of volunteering available in your area, the ACT’s catchment groups are a great place to start. Their friendly staff can help you find the right volunteering opportunity for you.

Alternatively you can call Access Canberra on 13 22 81 and ask to speak to some one about the ACT Government Parks and Places volunteer program, or the ParkCare volunteer program.
