The Green Army is a six-month programme for 17-24 year olds to train and work in the environment and gain training and experience in environmental and heritage conservation fields and explore careers in conservation management, while participating in projects that generate beneficial outcomes for the environment.
Naturelinks works together with these volunteer groups in planting, mulching, weeding. controlled burning and other coordinated activities. This gives the Green Army Teams the opportunity to meet professional bushland regenerators, experience real life training, and learn more about their environment and sustainability. Works undertaken to date were co-ordinated to increase long term biodiversity in Council Reserves.
A number of activities have taken place with these groups working together. These include the Balcombe Estuary Corridor of Green, the Urban Fringe at Arthurs Seat, flora protection at Moorooduc Quarry. and projects at Long Point and Betty Clift Reserve.
