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.’
