Securing the Future of the Hunter Wetlands Centre

The Hunter Wetlands Centre is a not-for-profit Community based charity. 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.!
