Falls Creek Hawkweed Volunteer Program 2017/18 Alpine National Park

Monday 11th
12:00am - 12:00am

Join the 2017/18 Falls Creek Hawkweed Volunteer Program

6 weekly sessions between 11th Dec ‘17 and 25th Jan ‘18

Volunteers can contribute to the eradication effort of Hawkweeds by conducting line surveys in the Alpine National Park. Participating in volunteer surveys is a great way to help protect the Victorian Alps from this dangerous weed, as well as a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the magnificent alpine environment during the green summer months.

What is involved?

Volunteers will be required for one week and need to make their own way to Falls Creek the night before the session start date. There is no experience required, all training is provided. Volunteers will just need lots of enthusiasm, a moderate fitness level, a good eye for detail and persistence to survey for at least 5 hours per day walking through sometimes challenging terrain.

What is provided?

There is no cost for being a volunteer on this project. Bunk style accommodation has kindly been provided by Falls Creek Resort Management. Transport will be provided to and from the survey areas each day. Parks Victoria will be providing catering for breakfast, coffee/teas, morning tea and a group dinner on the last night.

The dates for the 2017/2018 Season are:

Session 1: Monday 11th – Friday 15th December 2017

Session 2: Monday 18th – Friday 22nd December 2017
