The Friends of the Whyalla Conservation Park are a group of volunteers who offer their time, effort and skills to help to look after the Whyalla Conservation Park.
They are just one of over one hundred Friends of Parks groups spread over South Australia.
Our group was formed in 1987, after the Park was almost closed due to excessive vandalism.
It has won many awards since then, including Friends Group of the Year, Friends Group of the Decade, and three of our members have been named as South Australia's Friends of Parks Volunteer of the Year.
You don't have to have specialist knowledge to join our group.
We are a small group of members from varied backgrounds with
an appreciation for Whyalla's natural surroundings and an ever-present desire to learn more about them.
The Friends, in conjunction with the Park Ranger, are involved in controlling pest animals and plants, maintaining facilities, removing rubbish and general park checks.
