Join the Glenthorne Action Team

A dedicated volunteer program has been established for the Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta Precinct.

Glenthorne Action Team volunteer events are a great way to contribute towards the creation of Glenthorne, learn basic bushcare skills and connect with others in the local community.

If you’re curious to see what it takes to become a GAT volunteer check out this testimonial from volunteer Jenny Pickett.

You can also subscribe to learn more about the program and be notified of upcoming events.

We look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

Upcoming events

Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta tree guard removal

Tuesday April 20, 9:30 am to 11:30 am
Meeting point: park entrance on Alpine Road, Seacombe Heights.

Come along and help remove some tree guards at Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta on the northern side of Majors Road (formerly known as O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park). Why remove tree guards you might ask? Once they have done their job protecting the growth of new native plants, it’s important to remove them and either recycle of reuse them.

Once this important work is complete, you’ll enjoy a light morning tea and be able to enjoy the popular mountain bike trails in the park afterwards.

This event is suitable for families with children aged 6 and above.

Please bring your own bike to enjoy the trails.

Please also bring:

  • a hat
  • sunscreen
  • bottle of water
  • gloves
  • a chair
  • and wear a long-sleeved shirt, pants and sturdy shoes.

This is a great chance to contribute towards the creation of Glenthorne, get to know people in the local community over a coffee and cake afterwards and learn basic bushcare skills.

Registrations are essential via Eventbrite.

For more information, please contact Senior Ranger Jae Ellis on 0428 130 124.
