Volunteer training

A variety of training opportunities are provided free of charge to Murraylands and Riverland volunteers throughout the year. Training topics include first aid, work health and safety, project management and a range of practical on-ground topics such as weed control, seed collection and propagation. If your group has specific training needs, you can contact us for assistance.
