Volunteer interpreters at Namadgi and Tidbinbilla
Volunteer interpreters provide information and interpretation activities to local and international visitors on weekends, public holidays and during ACT school holidays. Ask a volunteer at the Tidbinbilla or Namadgi Visitor Information Centres about walks and activities in the park, talk about Corroboree Frogs and the reptile displays or get your kids to do some colouring-in. In the Sanctuary at Tidbinbilla, volunteers help to make your walk more exciting. They can tell you about the animals and plants that live there and know the best spots for Platypus sightings. During school holidays, volunteers also provide children's activities.
More information on becoming a volunteer with this program yourself, can be found on The ParkCare Initiative page. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who enjoy talking to visitors about the beauty and nature of Tidbinbilla and Namadgi. Training starts in July every year with applications closing early June.
"I love being out at Tidbinbilla and being able to share the wonder of nature with visitors. And I love all the learning opportunities. I think I learn something new each time I volunteer." -Thoughts of a Volunteer Interpreter.
