As a leading not for profit environmental organisation we have worked with a number of corporate supporters and their employees to deliver positive environmental outcomes that proactively engage corporate teams.

Corporate environmental volunteering (CEV) with National Parks is a great team building experience that strengthens bonds, ignites team spirit and creates memorable experiences for employees undertaking meaningful activities that benefit our environment. We can also organise site tours, native animal displays, Indigenous culture workshops and networking drinks, to wind down at the end of the day.

Corporate volunteers do not need to have any bush regeneration experience – just a willingness to learn while exploring and restoring some of our unique National Parks! Teams come away from their experience with a better understanding of the environment, the importance of National Parks and awareness regarding how their activities at home and at work may be affecting fragile ecosystems.

CEV events can be for 6 to 100 participants, from coastal areas to urban locations such as, Lane Cove, Mosman, Roseville, Penrith, Blue Mountains, Central Coast and various islands in Sydney Harbour. We have a range of National Parks located near Sydney and within a 20- 50 minute drive of the CBD.

Get involved, volunteer and learn more about your National Parks

Corporate volunteers learn about the significance of out native flora, gain knowledge about the importance of biodiversity and restoring native habitats for our unique animals. Teams have the opportunity to undertake activities such as reforestation and planting out native seedlings, nest box building, monitoring flora & fauna, light maintenance and heritage restoration work.

Overview of a National Parks Corporate Environmental Volunteer Day

A typical corporate volunteer day on National Parks starts at 9.30 am and concludes at 4.00 pm - we can accommodate preferred dates, times and adapt other elements of the day to suit the needs of your team.

An experienced team leader will be onsite to lead your team, provide information about the site including local environmental issues, the biodiversity of the area and deliver a safety briefing, and instructions for the volunteers to carry out their activities.

Get your hands dirty! Depending on the site and the National Parks management plan, your team will undertake a variety of tasks such as:

Why do we charge for a corporate volunteer day?

The funds raised by our CEV Program are invested back into the National Park hosting your day to support local volunteer groups. Funds also purchase the resources, tools and native seedlings for your team, which is why it is necessary to cover the costs associated with running corporate volunteer events.
