Volunteer at the environment centres

Share your passion for Brisbane's natural environment, learn about the reserves around you and give back to your community by volunteering at one of Brisbane City Council's environment centres.

Volunteering provides an excellent opportunity to share knowledge, learn new skills and meet new people from diverse backgrounds. 

Volunteering opportunities

Brisbane City Council has three environment centres across Brisbane, including Karawatha Forest Discovery Centre, Downfall Creek Bushland Centre and Boondall Wetlands Environment Centre. There are a variety of ways, environment centre volunteers are helping the community connect with Brisbane's nature reserves, including:  

  • greeting and visitor engagement
  • delivering interactive activities and workshops for visitors
  • leading interpretive guided walks
  • leading Bush Kindy guided walks and scavenger hunts
  • providing event and activity support
  • collecting valuable data for citizen science projects
  • maintaining and supporting Council's community composting hubs and free native plant nursery
  • helping maintain the gardens.
