Hunter Intrepid Landcare with funding from Hunter Local Land Services is helping to cover the costs of this event to make it free! We will be hanging out with some epic leaders who will take us on some local adventures, share cultural knowledge and we’ll get our hands dirty with Clean4Shore to look after the local environment and discover ways you can have a positive impact.

This weekend will be all about having an awesome experience in nature while looking at the impact you want to have, and creating the projects that you want to show up to.

Topics we will weave into a weekend full of outdoor adventure will include:

  • Getting ideas into actions – making stuff happen
  • Promoting stuff that matters – media and marketing, how to (and how to get rid of those jitters and fears when you might have to speak….in public!)
  • Gaining focus and purpose – how the hell do I choose what stuff to do and where do I even start!?

All of this will happen while we are:

  • Camping in some stunning bushland
  • Checking out local hikes and swimming holes
  • Spotlighting for cool wildlife
  • Sitting around the camp
  • Hanging out with and meeting other amazing like-minded humans
  • Getting involved in some local (and really fun!) Landcare

This adventure is for you if…

  • ​You volunteer with Intrepid Landcare in NSW and the ACT (if you’re interstate and in the hood by all means come too!)
  • You have been thinking of volunteering with Intrepid Landcare and 2019 is your year!
  • You are a young person volunteering with other Landcare networks
  • You are a young person leading on environmental change in your community and wish to connect with other like-minded young people around the state
