Wetlands play a critical role in flood mitigation, water and carbon storage, and supporting an abundance of unique local plant and animal species. Greater Darwin’s wetlands also have cultural significance to Indigenous groups and other local residents of Darwin. They support healthy community wellbeing through providing learning, tourism and recreational opportunities. They also provide an accessible point of access to nature and wildlife for people living in urban areas. Conservation Volunteers are building a sustainable strategy for the management of this area and invite volunteers to be a part of this management with activities including weed removal, watering, tree trimming, track maintenance, tree planting, wildlife monitoring and surveys.

We meet at the Conservation Volunteers Australia Darwin office and drive you out to the site at Knuckey or McMinns Lagoon. Online bookings are essential (via the Conservation Volunteers Australia website).
