Do you have an interest in rainforest, plants, animals or education and would enjoy working in a tranquil, peaceful rainforest education centre.
We have a wonderful team of volunteers and staff at the Reserve. Team members have a diverse range of expertise in local flora and fauna, environmental education and of course in people and forest management – so there is always something new to learn.
Visitor Information Volunteers commit a minimum of four hours per month on the information desk to greet visitors to the Reserve. Sharing their rainforest knowledge with local families, students and visitors from around the world is a key part of this role.
Volunteer Interpretative Guides play an important role in providing booked educational activities to school and tour groups. Currently an educational package is being developed for this Reserve and will be available for the commencement of the 2018 school year. Volunteer guides look forward to supporting local and visiting school students in carrying out curriculum based research and preparing reports on the history, flora and fauna of the reserve.
Regular volunteer meetings provide an opportunity for all volunteers to listen to experts present informative workshops, join flora & fauna identification walks as well as socialise over morning tea.
If you think you may be interested in assisting to promote the Reserve then, don’t be shy – go for it! Phone the information desk on 07 5429 6122 to talk it over or pop in to the visitor centre and have a chat with the volunteer on the desk.
