Volunteer for the environment
National Volunteer Week 8-14 May
To celebrate, we want to reward special volunteers with time out this week.
Volunteering for any cause is a great way to participate in your community, meet new people, use your skills or learn new ones, try new challenges and connect with like minded others.
Participating in Keep Australia Beautiful programs can help protect native wildlife and conserve bushlands and waterways to create a cleaner and safer place to live.

Volunteering in nature is good for your health
Did you know that volunteering by connecting in nature is good for the environment but also good for our physical and mental health too?
According to our partners at Mentally Healthy WA, Act Belong Commit program...being active, having a sense of belonging, and having a purpose in life all contribute to happiness and good mental health.
Keep Australia Beautiful encourages Western Australians to keep mentally, physically and socially active by getting out into their natural environment and connecting with simple envionmental activities.
Act – Get into a park, walk in the bush, do some gardening or watch a sunset.
Belong– Connect with others by joining a bird watching group, organising a family picnic or learning to sail with friends.
Commit – Join a tree planting group or volunteer to Adopt-a-Spot to keep litter-free.
