Volunteering at Boolcoomatta
We know we say it a lot (although we should say it more), but we couldn't do what we do at Bush Heritage without our wonderful collection of volunteers.
In the last 12 months alone, we calculated that our close to 800 volunteers around the country contributed almost 58,000 hours of work!
That’s an incredible statistic, and one we don’t take for granted.
Whether they’re helping us with data entry, fence removal, weed control, research projects, revegetation, catering or countless other activities, their hard work is making positive and lasting changes to the landscapes that we manage around Australia.
Just like at Boolcoomatta Station Reserve in eastern South Australia, where Tony and Meredith Geyer have been volunteering for the past four years. We recently captured some footage of them on reserve talking about their experience.
Our volunteers' generosity also plays a huge role in contributing to the type of organisation that we aim to be, all connected by a love of the environment and a commitment to conservation.
So for National Volunteers Week we want to say a huge thank you for all the diverse and wondrous ways that volunteers support our work here at Bush Heritage. We truly couldn’t do it without them.
From the Bush Heritage Volunteer Coordination Team - Michelle, Leanne and Sarah.
