Securing the Future of the Hunter Wetlands Centre

This means that we need to raise all our own funds to ensure the survival and growth of this Ramsar listed wetlands of International significance. The Hunter Wetlands Centre works hard to secure grants that are given for special projects and we would not be able to exist without the generous dedication of our volunteers.
We need your help to secure the future.!

Hunter Wetlands Centre is a community based not-for-profit charity. We are totally reliant on a strong team of dedicated volunteers to manage and run the centre.
If you love visiting the centre and would like to support the environment, please consider volunteering.
The diversity of skills, knowledge and abilities of our volunteers will ensure the continued successful operation of this wetland of international significance.
Most people volunteer once or twice a week. However, you may like to volunteer fortnightly or just for special events eg art exhibition openings. There are many roles for volunteers but not all are available every day.
