Friends of Lagoon Creek Group's Journey

Updated: Apr 29

Transitioning Towards a Brighter Future:

In recent years, Friends of Lagoon Creek Group has been on a transformative journey, moving away from past programs such as Work for the Dole and Correctional Services partnerships towards a new focus on recruiting volunteers and fostering a thriving member and volunteer culture. This shift represents a significant evolution in our organisation's approach to community engagement and environmental stewardship.

Embracing Volunteerism

One of the key changes we've embraced is a stronger emphasis on volunteerism. While past programs served their purpose, we recognized the immense value that dedicated volunteers bring to our conservation efforts. Volunteers not only contribute their time and skills but also bring a passion for environmental preservation that is truly inspiring.

Creating a Vibrant Culture

Central to our transition has been the creation of a vibrant culture within Friends of Lagoon Creek Group. We believe that a strong sense of community and camaraderie among our members and volunteers is crucial for long-term success. Through regular meetings, social events, and collaborative projects, we're building a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and motivated to make a difference.

Empowering Through Education

Education plays a vital role in our transition strategy. So we are very committed to providing training and learning opportunities for volunteers, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in ecological restoration and conservation projects. By empowering volunteers through education, we not only enhance the impact of our work but also foster a sense of ownership and pride in our shared mission.
