Volunteer With Us

Whether it’s meeting like-minded people, gaining new skills, or offering your specialist skills for a great cause, volunteering for nature can be a fantastic experience.

Nature Foundation offers opportunities for all ages and fitness levels. If you feel like some hands-on conservation volunteering then why not come out to a planting day, undertake ‘citizen science’ activities to support scientists with their field research, or come along to a working bee on one of our nature reserves. There's a lot to choose from.

We are grateful to the many passionate and committed people who are already volunteering their time to benefit nature conservation in South Australia – on our Board, on nature reserves, at Water For Nature sites, on Committees, at numerous events and in the office.

If you think volunteering with Nature Foundation might be for you, please contact Nature Foundation on 08 8340 2880 or [email protected] and we’ll be in touch soon!

Volunteer Profile

Steph’s background is in Mathematics and programming, and she has been studying a science degree part-time for the last few years around her work as a database engineer.

"I wanted to get some experience in the industry, and Nature Foundation felt ideal. I was very drawn to their approach to conservation – it was practical, with the ability to be stable over the long term and protect large and important areas of land. I love that they own such beautiful properties and do such varied conservation work within them."

"I have found the generosity of the staff and other volunteers to be the most rewarding aspect of volunteering with Nature Foundation. I feel so included in the organisation and I know people are on the lookout for tasks that I am interested in helping with. This has resulted in a varied and interesting volunteer experience, from data analysis in the office (something I really enjoy) to helping out on the most recent vegetation survey at Hiltaba Nature Reserve. Data and vegetation are my two passions in the environmental sphere so to be able to have covered both of them with the encouragement of the staff at Nature Foundation has been great."
