Events

Nature Foundation hosts a wide range of events every year for our members, supporters and the broader community so there's a lot to choose from!

Nature Foundation is paying close attention to health recommendations regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We may need to reconsider many of our upcoming events and activities - this page will be updated if circumstances change.


If hands-on conservation work is your thing, join us for a planting day or come along to a Working Bee on one of our nature reserves. We also host tours to see conservation in action and this year we celebrate our 40th birthday with a gala dinner in October! We look forward to welcoming you at one of our events this year. 

Online event bookings are coming soon, stay tuned! For further information on any event please contact our office on 08 8340 2880.
