Is there an environmental or conservation project in our region which could benefit from practical, on-ground support?

Are you aged between 17 and 24 and interested in gaining practical training and experience while working in the local environment…or do you know someone who might be?

If you can tick any of these, come along to the Albury-Wodonga information session to find out about the Australian Government’s Green Army program…

11am to 1pm – Fri 28 August – Albury Library Museum, 540 Kiewa Street (Cnr Swift Street)

Information sessions on how to get involved in the Green Army are running across Australia throughout August. It’s an opportunity to think about how organisations can apply for a project and how young people can participate in them.

If you want to let us know you’re coming, simply register your attendance by sending an RSVP to greenarmy@environment.gov.au by Fri 21 August.

According to Environment Minister, Greg Hunt, “right across Australia, the Green Army is making a real difference to the environment and local communities through projects such as restoring and protecting habitat, weeding, planting, cleaning up creeks and rivers and restoring cultural heritage places”.

Applications for projects under Round Four of the programme are now open and close at 2pm on Wed 16 September.

For more information about Round 4 including eligibility, project guidelines and application form and the full schedule of community information sessions go to www.australia.gov.au/greenarmy
