Centennial Parklands Foundation Corporate Volunteering Cultural Engagement and Conservation Program
There is something truly special in volunteering, to be in a position that contributes to the greater benefit of the community, the benefits of volunteering being a full circle for volunteers and the community they serve.
That's why, after much interest, we're excited to be running our Corporate Volunteering Program here once again at Centennial Parklands Foundation!
Our Cultural Engagement and Conservation program is an immersive experience which directly supports the restoration of Centennial Parklands' critically endangered plant community, Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS).
ESBS once occupied 5300 hectares within the Sydney region, but now only exists in 146 hectares - or 1% - of its original area.
Your volunteering work will improve the site’s biodiversity and support the return of native flora and fauna. Tasks may include removing invasive weeds and watering or replanting with native species.
We cater to group sizes of 15-20 but can always open up to those slightly bigger groups that are hungry to get out of the office.
We're all really excited to see you and connect with you in the Park soon!
Here is a sample of your volunteering day schedule:
