Friends of Strickland State Forest

Become a Friend of Strickland State Forest on the NSW Central Coast. As a volunteer you have the opportunity to work outdoors, learn new skills and contribute to the education, recreation and conservation values of this unique forest.  We are also a social group – a place to meet new people and an excellent environment for secondary and tertiary students to gain valuable work-experience.

We are always on the lookout for active new members.


The Friends of Strickland group works on a range of projects, including:

  • constructing a network of walking tracks for other community members to explore this forest environment;
  • carrying out natural area restoration to enable rare and threatened plants, animals and plant communities to outcompete noxious and environmental weed species;
  • stamping out illegal activities such as rubbish dumping and vandalism in the forest, and making the forest a clean and safe place to visit.

On the day

All equipment and supervision is provided. Volunteers should wear long trousers, long sleeves and sturdy shoes. Please bring a water bottle. Morning tea is provided.  All volunteers are inducted into the program at their first session and are informed of Forestry Corporation Volunteer Policy and Safety Management System requirements.
