Springbrook 3-5 November 2017
add this page to My Favorites

This is the third year that we are helping the Springbrook Rainforest Rescue project with weeding. Springbrook Rescue is a project to protect and restore the World Heritage rainforests of the Springbrook region. It involves seven programs:

1 Acquiring land to expand the World Heritage area
2 Restoring critical habitat and landscape connectivity
3 Community engagement in World Heritage protection,
presentation and restoration
4 Science programs to guide restoration and monitoring
5 Protecting World Heritage through better governance
6 Presenting World Heritage values for their protection
and community well being
7 Partnerships to realize a shared vision

It commenced in 2005 and is managed by the Australian Rainforest conservation Society (ARCS), led by Dr Aila Keto and Dr Keith Scott.

Further information: -

To volunteer on this project, you need to come up to Springbrook on Friday night (3rd November) so that we can make an early start on Saturday. We usually do 4 hours of easy weeding of the oramental plant - Aristea ecklonii a bad weed threating the health of the rainforests.

All volunteers can stay in the project lodge for the duration of weekend (cost is $40 per person (kids $20). Apart from weeding we will also do two half day bushwalks (easy to moderate)

The Lodge is in the middle of the rainforest near Best of All Lookout. There are four self-contained motel style rooms and one shared self-contained room with a separate 5 bed bunk-room and a screened double bed in kitchen area of shared room.

Accommodation - there are four motel style units within the lodge
that each have a double bed, sofa bed and a single bed in the loft
plus ensuite and kitchenette. In addition there is a family room
with double bed and separate room with five single bunk beds
and bathroom and kitchenette. All rooms have small fridge.

Communal facilities include large lounge with fire place,
large dinning area and small kitchen with fridges, microwaves,
stove, electric kettle, etc.

Requirements Adults are required to volunteer for 4 hours
of weeding on Saturday morning.

Cost $40 for Adults; $20 for kids for the weekend (includes
2 nights of accommodation. $20/$10 if only staying Friday night.)
