Volunteering in the natural environment creates mutual benefits. The bush and our agricultural land, our coasts and seas, and our native animals all benefit greatly from the understanding, advocacy and conservation efforts of volunteers.
Volunteers also get many benefits including enjoying nature, healthy activity and feeling good about contributing to a healthy environment.
In 2015-16, environmental volunteers in the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges (AMLR) region contributed the equivalent of over $4,565,600 of in-kind work – a truly remarkable effort!
Natural Resources AMLR provides support and information to environmental volunteers in the region.
There are many ways to get involved with looking after our environment; from joining a community group or not-for-profit organisation, participating at one-off events or helping out at a community-run natural resource centre.
