Become a Volunteer
WCL welcomes volunteers to our organisation. We have a wide variety of volunteering opportunities. If you have administrative skills, social media skills, are interested in documenting our organisation’s history or just want to propagate & plant native plants, please consider volunteering for Whitsunday Catchment Landcare. You will need to complete the volunteer registration form & undertake a safety induction before commencing volunteering at the nursery.

Become Involved at the WCL Community Nursery
WCL runs volunteer mornings at the Community Nursery on Tuesday & Thursday mornings commencing at 9am & ending around 12 noon. The Community Nursery is located at 33 Kelsey Creek Road, Proserpine.
Activities include native plant seed processing, storing, propagation, tubing-up and nursery maintenance tasks. New Volunteers receive a workplace safety induction and participants receive ongoing support from our staff in undertaking the tasks involved in native plant tube stock production. We also provide the required materials & equipment and an excellent morning tea. We endeavour to provide an alternative activity to the nursery work on the 3rd Thursday of each month. These activities may involve visits to various local revegetation sites for maintenance or seed collecting or just visiting sites of regional botanical significance and interest. These alternate activities are advertised in our monthly newsletter & on our facebook page.
