UPDATE 12/11/20: Landcare & Community Programs - Volunteering & Grants: COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update for Landcare and Community Programs

We know that your Landcare and environmental volunteering work means a lot to you, as it does to us too, and we welcome the changes to restrictions as we continue to remain vigilant and ensure everyone’s safety.

The Victorian Government has announced changed restrictions for Melbourne and regional Victoria. Please visit https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/ for more details.

Environmental volunteering can be done within the latest public health measures if the following are observed:

  • Before undertaking any activity, please contact your program manager or land manager and adhere to any program-specific safety requirement.
  • Ensure any contractor your group engages has a COVIDSafe plan in place. Request a copy of the plan and keep it on file.
  • Collect an attendance record on site with the name and phone numbers of all volunteers
  • Follow the maximum participation numbers
  • Adhere to wearing fitted face masks, physical distancing and good hygiene practices as per DHHS guidelines.

We ask that you follow the most up-to-date advice and check here before doing your activities.

Your safety and well-being are paramount. We are appreciative of your continued patience and your ongoing commitment to environmental volunteering.
