Volunteering can be a rewarding experience for people of all ages! Volunteers make new friends, learn new things, share knowledge, have fun and keep fit. Volunteers play an important role in the management of natural resources across the Eyre Peninsula. Their contribution of time, energy, knowledge, expertise and skills, equipment and resources is extremely valuable. One of our most important assets in the region is our communities, and we highly value the contribution made by volunteers.
There are many opportunities to volunteer in the Eyre Peninsula region with either Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula or a range of other groups. Whatever the amount of time you can spare as a volunteer we will work with you to find something that fits with you, supports us, and helps the environment. The region has over 20 groups and individuals participating in volunteer activities. If you would like to be involved, please contact us.
