Interactive Map showing Environmental Volunteering Opportunities across Victoria
Environmental Volunteering Opportunities - We’re making it easy for people interested in environmental volunteering to get involved through local groups.
- Zoom into the location you're interested in. Each dot represents a group.
- Select the dot to see the following info: Group name, core activities, contact details (Facebook or website). (Multiple groups may be represented by an individual dot. To access all groups use the arrow keys at the top of the pop-up box).
- Connect with the group through their website or social media platforms and let them know you’re keen to participate.
It’s as simple as:

You can filter groups by activity type, local government area (LGA), Catchment Management Area (CMA) or Group name.
Toggle on the filter type you are interested in (button will turn from grey to green), click the arrow on the left to expand the filter, and choose from the dropdown list or start typing. You can apply multiple filters simultaneously.
Is your volunteer group missing in action?
If your group is missing, please fill out this form to ensure your group's information is up to date do you can recruit and connect with potential volunteers.
Please note: We understand that enviornmental volunteering occurs across local government areas (LGA) and CMA boundaries and that groups undertake lots of different activities - to make this map simple we have allocated a Primary LGA/CMA and activity category. The legend showing activity types can be accessed on the top right of the map.
