If you would like to con­tribute to the trans­for­ma­tion of Glen­thorne Nation­al Park-Itya­mai­it­pin­na Yarta, there are many ways to get involved: 

Join the Glen­thorne Action Team

The Glen­thorne Action Team is a ded­i­cat­ed vol­un­teer pro­gram that was estab­lished specif­i­cal­ly to help in the trans­for­ma­tion of the Glen­thorne Nation­al Park-Itya­mai­it­pin­na Yarta Precinct.

Glen­thorne Action Team vol­un­teer events are a great way to con­tribute towards the trans­for­ma­tion 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 Glen­thorne Action Team vol­un­teer check out the below tes­ti­mo­ni­al from vol­un­teer Jen­ny Pick­ett.

Vol­un­teer testimonials

Jen­ny Pick­ett, Glen­thorne Action Team volunteer

I’m a wannabe ama­teur field nat­u­ral­ist and con­ser­va­tion­ist who lives near Mari­no Con­ser­va­tion Park and has been keen­ly track­ing progress of the new­ly formed Glen­thorne Nation­al Park and its Glen­thorne Action Team.

Hav­ing vis­it­ed Mari­no Con­ser­va­tion Park a cou­ple of times and recog­nis­ing its cul­tur­al and geo­log­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance, I was keen to vol­un­teer my ser­vices to assist in the con­ser­va­tion of this impor­tant part of our coast and Glen­thorne Nation­al Park.

The Glen­thorne Action Team ran an event on 22 Sep­tem­ber at Mari­no Con­ser­va­tion Park where the Friends of Mari­no Con­ser­va­tion Park vol­un­teer group set tasks for the vol­un­teers to complete.

We were put into groups and my group’s task was to con­trol some errant wat­tle – many were the orig­i­nal plant­i­ngs from when Mari­no Con­ser­va­tion Park was first estab­lished 30 years ago.

This event was three hours in dura­tion – the high­light was some seri­ous­ly deli­cious and revi­tal­is­ing morn­ing tea and great company.

I learnt a great deal from the Friends group – many of whom are long-serv­ing mem­bers. I was warm­ly wel­comed as a vol­un­teer and poten­tial mem­ber. Mem­ber­ship to the Friends of Mari­no Con­ser­va­tion Park is $10 per year and rep­re­sents great value.

These oppor­tu­ni­ties serve to pro­vide edu­ca­tion, encour­age respon­si­ble use, account­abil­i­ty and own­er­ship of Glen­thorne Nation­al Park and one thing’s for sure – I want to be a part of that.’
