The Yarra Riverkeeper Association seeks a river that is Healthy, Protected and Loved and we believe that everyone has a contribution to make to improve our relationship with the river. By volunteering with us you will have the unique opportunity to experience our iconic and ever beautiful Yarra, Birrarung River and to actively improve the health of the river.
Regardless of the experience you choose, we can guarantee your time outdoors help you feel more connected to nature! Your group will not only experience the river environment but will learn about how to protect and care for it as a living natural entity.
Morning Sessions run from 10.00 am – 12.00 pm

A good attitude and a genuine interest in river health and how you can support it!
Yes! Corporate volunteering provides a fun, friendly environment for your team to get to know each other. Most of the tasks will require working together, yet still provide time to chat. If your team is relatively new to one another, we can allow time for you to complete some ice breaker activities at the start of the session.
Please wear outdoor clothing and comfortable, closed toe shoes. As your team may get dirty or wet, please dress appropriately for the conditions – it can get very warm in summer and chilly in winter! We encourage all volunteers to bring their own water bottle.
We provide all the necessary equipment for river and land experiences, and can supply a catered lunch at an additional cost.
Our catered lunch includes a 3-piece lunch (wraps, fruit and salad) at an extra cost of $20 per person. Alternatively, you are welcome to organise your own catering.
