Becoming a Volunteer

TIN welcomes new volunteers to our Community Nursery at 119 Kalaroo road, Belmont State Wetlands Park, Belmont.

We are open for volunteering activities Monday to Wednesday from 8 am till 12 pm.

To become a volunteer you need to become a member of TIN. TIN Membership form provides a summary of Trees In Newcastle’s mission and purpose under which all volunteers give their time. Membership is free for Volunteers.

The second stage of volunteering is to attend an interview &  induction session. These occur  as required.

Please contact the office to find out when the next session is being held.
