Working to improve our oldest national park

The aim of the Friends of Mount Field is to assist with maintaining the environment and recreational facilities in the park.

It provides opportunity for volunteers to work on projects and gain a sense of achievement and involvement in projects that have long term environmental and community benefit. This includes maintenance of selected walking tracks, care and repair of huts and tackling weed infestations. 

The areas worked  are predominantly those used by bushwalkers, such as the Field East and Tarn Shelf tracks, Lakes Nicholls and Fenton huts and the Rodway Shelter. 

Working bees are usually held one day a month usually on the third Saturday of the month, but other events are held on an ad hoc basis.

Regular Events:
3rd Saturday of the month. Group meets at Granton at 8am. Activities vary.

Primary Contact:

This information is provided for people to contact member groups about their community Landcare activities. Anyone wishing to distribute information generally to groups should contact Landcare Tasmania with their request.
