About Green Nomads
Green Nomads is an exciting new casual volunteering program that links Australia’s large travelling population with community natural resource management groups who need extra volunteers to help undertake conservation works in their local communities.
What is a Green Nomad?
Being a Green Nomad means having fun, meeting new friends, learning new skills (and sharing yours) and visiting some very special places. There is nothing like a Queensland experience to put a smile on your face and as a Green Nomad you have the opportunity to help preserve these experiences for your next visit and the next generation.
Green Nomads are a special group of travellers who, through the Green Nomad program, access volunteering opportunities with local community natural resource management (NRM) groups throughout Queensland. Green Nomads lend an extra hand to these groups, volunteering in a range of activities from assistance at events to outdoor activities such as tree planting and wildlife monitoring. Whatever your interest or activity level there is a volunteering opportunity to suit you!
What is Involved?
As a Green Nomad, you can give as much or as little time as you have available on your travels.
Benefits of becoming a Green Nomad
Have a few hours, a few days or a few weeks to spare? There is a great variety of things you could do – from helping out in the field, to participating at events, to important behind-the-scenes work. Whether you are a beginner or have many years of experience, volunteering can be an important and wonderful experience.
There are many good reasons to volunteer, ranging from learning experiences and knowledge sharing, to personal satisfaction and the chance to make real connections with the places you visit and people who live there.
