Green Army projects are underway in Stirling and I encourage young people between the ages of 17 – 24 who want to gain valuable skills; training and experience in environmental and conservation fields to register their interest.
Some of the great projects to be rolled out soon include the Northern Metropolitan Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo Conservation Project- Stage 1. The project includes revegetation and rehabilitation of the Northern Metropolitan bushlands, parks and reserves, with a focus on major roosting sites to form a Cockatoo Corridor.
Green Army participants undertake accredited training and receive a Green Army allowance for the duration of their project. Participants are also supported to work towards Certificate I or II qualifications or nationally endorsed skills set to help them prepare for the workforce or improve their career opportunities.
Young Australians interested in joining the Green Army can apply through the appointed Service Providers for each state and territory at www.environment.gov.au/green-army, or alternatively please contact my office on (08) 9445 3222 for more information.
