Volunteer and Grow this Spring

Kathmandu Summit Club Members are encouraged to get outdoors and make a difference by joining Conservation Volunteers at our upcoming volunteer day.

Kathmandu has partnered with Conservation Volunteers to provide a hands-on conservation activity to Summit Club members in Melbourne this November.  Kathmandu Summit Club members are invited to get together outside and make a difference volunteering at Yarra Bend Park on Sunday 13th  November, 2016.


Yarra Bend Park is the largest area of native vegetation in inner Melbourne with diverse landscapes ranging from steep river escarpments to open woodlands. By participating in conservation and land management activities in this park you will directly impact the 13 threatened fauna species and 7 threatened flora species including the Grey Headed Flying Foxes that make Yarra Bend Park their home.

The focus of the volunteer day will be on habitat restoration that may include spreading mulch, removing invasive weed species, rubbish collection, path construction and water testing. These activities aim to protect and enhance the habitat for a large number of species that live in Yarra Bend Park due to its wildlife corridors and biodiversity links.

What you need to know:

The day will run from 10am until 2.30pm.

A BBQ lunch will be provided with the day concluding with an interpretive nature walk around the park.

Activities will be family friendly and we encourage you to go at you own leisurely pace.

Conservation Volunteers will provide all tools and personal protection equipment including sturdy gloves and safety vests (but if you have a favourite pair of gardening gloves you are most welcome to bring them with you).

To register for this event please complete the online registration form by Sunday 6th November.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to volunteer with Kathmandu Summit Club in 2017.
