Volunteering with DEW

Are you passionate about the environment or built heritage? Do you love working outdoors? As a DEW volunteer you can help to conserve the natural environment, or a heritage site, for future generations and feel great while you're doing it.

We have more than 6000 volunteers caring for our parks, gardens and reserves. Every year these dedicated people donate around 20,000 days of work. Many of these volunteers are associated with a park that holds some personal significance to them or to their community.

There are over 140 Friends of parks groups aligned with various parks throughout the state.

If you would like to discuss upcoming volunteer projects or register your interest in becoming a volunteer, we can help you to find an activity that works for you.
