Parks Victoria and Conservation Volunteers Australia have paired up to create a variety of practical conservation volunteer opportunities within the Grampians National Park. There are a number of projects planned, including tree planting, habitat restoration, park maintenance, flood and fire recovery projects and many more.
Fire Recovery Project Description
Come to the Grampians in Wildflower season and help to remove the invasive South African Orchid and Sallow Wattle.
Due to site disturbance from the recent fires in the Grampians region, earlier in the year, a number of weeds are coming up. Join us for a day or for the week to assist in the surveying where we will be looking for and removing the invasive South African Weed Orchid. Projects may also include the removal of an invasive weed Sallow Wattle.
The South African Weed Orchid has potential to impact on native understorey flora, especially rare and endangered plants. The plant grows readily in competition with a wide range of other flora including grasses, it invades bushland and pastures and is attracted to disturbed sites. The South African orchid, will grow in all light conditions and is not fussy about soil types.
Sallow wattle is an invasive woody species which fire simulates germination. This weed grows in thick density and prevents native trees and shrubs from growing in their native habitat. By volunteering on these projects you will be contributing by maintaining our native habitat in ecological vulnerable and threatened areas.
Week long programs:

You can volunteer for the day, or for the week, whatever suits your availability. All volunteers are provided with the appropriate tools and equipment needed for the project. Accommodation can be arranged if needed. Projects will run out of Halls Gap, located in the central Grampians and transport will be provided from Halls Gap to and from the project site daily.
