Volunteer with the department using our online, cloud-based portal.

The portal hosts many of our volunteer projects and activities, including those from NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, Royal Botanic Gardens, and a selection from Saving our Species.

Volunteers can search for projects to get involved with, sign up and join like-minded volunteers to help the environment.

Projects involve activities that directly benefit our natural environment, such as:

  • collecting data for plant and animal surveys
  • weeding
  • tree planting.

The portal enables you to create an account, sign up for a project, organise your shifts, track hours and find out about volunteer news from across the state.
