Tilligerry Habitat Association is a not for profit, charitable, incorporated association that manages the crown land reserve and staffs the Environment Centre.
Our members volunteer their time to staff the environment centre 7 days a week between 9am and 3pm. We also supervise volunteer work teams on Mondays and Tuesdays. Members and volunteers have worked for this site since 1993 with the goal of preserving, supporting and improving it for locals and visitors.
People from all over the world come to meet an Aussie – and sometimes they see a koala as well. You can help us by volunteering to man the centre and/or work;
on the site
in the nursery
in the office
as a tour guide
At 12 noon or 5pm (depending on daylight savings time) on the 2nd Sunday of the each month, we run a chicken and sausage BBQ in our waterwise garden and on the covered deck. Members pay $8, Community $10. It is a very pleasant afternoon in the sunshine.
Conservation, rehabilitation, education and community.
