Join Ballina's Green Army

BALLINA'S Green Army is looking for young people aged 17-24 to join the frontlines of the battle to protect the natural environment.

The Green Army is a fantastic opportunity to learn about conservation, plant propagation and bush regeneration over 20 - 23 weeks while being paid an allowance.

The project assists Dunecare groups and Ballina Shire Council to restore our coastal ecosystems.

The next Ballina based Green Army project starts in January 2016.
