Learn how to protect our natural enviornment
South Australia’s respected environmental organisation Trees For Life offers people from all walks of life the opportunity to help restore and protect our State’s native vegetation.
Members of the public can gain hands-on experience through TFL’s Bush For Life program, initially by attending one of the bush regeneration workshops which are held throughout the greater metropolitan area each year.
At the workshop, participants will learn:
- why the bush needs your help;
- the best strategies for restoring ecological processes;
- minimal disturbance techniques;
- how to work safely in the bush;
- how you can get involved as a Bush For Life volunteer
Continuous learning opportunities are also provided through the program, ensuring participants discover the best techniques to get native plants regenerating and how to defeat invasive weeds. BFL also holds advanced workshops which cover topics such as native plant and grass identification, advanced bush management techniques, brushcutting and more.
Volunteers also choose how they want to be involved in the longer term. They can participate in small group activities every now and then, adopt a bushland site of their own or join our Bush Action Team.
If you want to find out more about getting hands-on experience through Bush For Life, phone the office on 8406 0500.
Being part of BFL just takes a small portion of your time, and passion – and the rewards are endless!
