Bushwalks and work parties
NPA has a year-round program of bush and nature walks and other outdoor outings, and organises regular volunteer work parties to regenerate bushland, to stop erosion, to remove pest plants, old fencing and barbed wire, to restore huts and to install tracks and signs.
Good morning to all our ParkCare volunteers,
As you’re aware COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation and the ACT Government has declared a public health emergency. The situation changes daily, so for the most up to date information please keep an eye on www.health.act.gov.au or call the Coronavirus Information Line on 1800 020 080.
We’ve been monitoring the progress of COVID-19 and the health and safety of volunteers, staff and community is our top priority.
In light of the Government’s response to COVID-19, The Environment Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate including the ACT Parks and Conservation Service will today halt all external community and volunteer events until 19 September 2020 (6 months). This includes all RangerAssist, WildlifeAssist, VisitorAssist and ParkCare Patch activities. As individuals you are still welcome within our parks and reserves that are open to the public, but no ParkCare volunteer activities will take place.
This has been a difficult decision but has been made with the single intent of protecting the health of our volunteers, employees and the general public.
We will remain in contact through this challenging time and hope to see you all safe, healthy and ready in Spring .
I thank you for your understanding and if you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with myself or a member of our volunteer management team (Marty or Kaz).
