South Australia’s first volunteer ranger recruits will start duty these school holidays by hosting free family-friendly activities in Morialta Conservation Park and Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park.
Earlier this year, South Australia’s first Volunteer Ranger Program was launched with more than 120 applications received from nature-loving South Australians.
The Volunteer Ranger Program is a great way for nature-lovers to make a difference by connecting people with the state’s national parks and, in turn, help them care for our environment.
These October school holidays 17 of the new volunteer rangers will start duty by running free activities such as guided walks and interactive storytelling in Morialta Conservation Park and Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park.
The activities are a pilot run and will initiate the roll out of program with the aim of having 100 volunteer rangers helping in parks across the state by 2021.

The Volunteer Ranger Program is a milestone of the State Government’s More Park Rangers initiative. The commitment also includes increasing park rangers by 20 per cent, as well as establishing better career pathways for Aboriginal rangers by 2021.
