The Ginninderra Catchment Group supports volunteers to undertake environmental activities in a number of ways. Our current members come from a variety of backgrounds and their interests vary. Some members are motivated by improving the areas surrounding their homes, whilst others have specific interests in issues such as water quality, weed management, education or threatened flora and fauna. The Group recognises that many of our members are not interested or unable to participate in the more rigorous activities such as weed removal or revegetation but can provide invaluable support in other ways, often through our working groups or helping out with administrative tasks.

The Ginninderra Catchment Group encourages and supports membership by individual volunteers. Individual volunteers need not be directly associated with one of our Landcare groups, but may like to be involved in activities in different geographic areas or from time to time.
The Group aims to provide a wide range of volunteering opportunities for people from all walks of life, with different interests and skills. A range of flexible volunteering roles exist such as:
- Conducting research into different aspects of best practice environmental management.
- Providing input to Group submissions and plans on various issues.
- Assisting with graphic design and publishing of various documents.
- Assisting with administration activities such as proof-reading documents, typing, filing and data entry.
We can also connect you with a wider network of environmental organizations and their activities such as Greening Australia, Conservation Council of the South East Region and Canberra, Canberra Environment Centre, Conservation Volunteers Australia, Canberra Ornithologists Group, ANUGreen and many others.
