"> Membership - Ginninderra Catchment Group


Membership and Supporters

The Ginninderra Catchment Group supports its volunteers to undertake environmental activities in a number of ways. Our supporters come from a variety of backgrounds and with different interests. Some are keen to improve the areas surrounding their homes, whilst others have an interests in specific issues such as water quality, weed management, education or threatened flora and fauna. GCG recognises that there are many ways through which people can support our activities, from more rigorous tasks such as weed removal or revegetation, to contributing to our working groups or helping out with administrative tasks.
