Volunteers in action

Volunteers at Porter Scrub Conservation Park

Become a volunteer

Since 2011 the Porter Scrub Volunteer Action Group has been undertaking on-groundwork activities in the park supported by the Upper River Torrens Landcare Group (URTLG) and National Parks of SA. The Park was significantly burnt during the Cudlee Creek 2019-20 Bushfire and on-ground works during 2021 and previous years have helped to reduce the threat of weed invasion post-fire. Over the 10+ years of working in the park the URTLG has been successful in obtaining grants to support the volunteers in undertaking activities such as weed control, threatened plant and bird monitoring and workshops, plant identification, bat workshops, orchid surveys, bird banding, a mine site survey and remote camera surveys.

The small group of dedicated volunteers meet at the park from April to October, once a month, typically on a Sunday morning from 9-1130 am. Equipment is provided to undertake weeding activities and at the end of each session we chat over morning tea and coffee and cake. If you want to get out in nature with like-minded people and learn about our wonderful biodiversity while whacking a few weeds in Porter Scrub then make contact with us.

Register your interest with the URTLG for Porter Scrub Volunteer Action Group or/and Cromer Conservation Park Working Group.

We do encourage you to become a member of the URTLG to participate in the activities at Porter Scrub.
