CORPORATE ENVIRONMENTAL VOLUNTEERING

FNPW organises corporate volunteering days in National Parks.

Employee teams have a great time getting their hands dirty for Australian conservation!

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, and Indigenous culture workshops.

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.

 

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.

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

- planting out areas with native seedlings

- bush regeneration activities including mulching and weeding

- heritage restoration work at Middle Head – help us reveal the old tunnels at Middle Head!

Corporate Volunteering Cost: $120 + GST per person, inclusive of morning tea and lunch.

 

Why do we charge for corporate volunteer days? 

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.

Corporate Volunteering expenses cover the following:

- Certificate of appreciation to your company for the investment of your corporate volunteers time and company funds

- Volunteer Accident Insurance Policy covering volunteer participation in our activities

- Jobs Safety Analysis for each site including site preparation work (which may include ripping of soil, application of fertilisers or other soil conditioners, organising tools and plant orders)

- Team Leader to conduct site induction, safety briefing and coordinate activities that the team will be undertaking

- Purchase of consumables such as gloves, seedlings, tree guards, stakes, fertilisers, water crystals and weed mats

- Provision of all tools and equipment required

- Regular site maintenance - to keep the site weed free and native seedlings happily watered!
