Volunteer with us

Inspiring the community to preserve our natural resources is critical to managing the environment, and the board is committed to strengthening these relationships. 

Choosing to volunteer and help the natural environment creates so many 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 2017-18, environmental volunteers in the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges (AMLR) region contributed the equivalent of over $11 million of in-kind work from 12,235 people putting in 278,056 hours – 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.
