The Federal Government has announced the fourth round of Green Army projects for 2015 and restoration of areas of the Warrumbungle National Park has been included. Three projects to “focus on significantly improving erosion issues in the park, improving visitor access tracks, reducing the competitive impact of invasive weed species and assisting National Parks and Wildlife Service staff with pest control and monitoring to inform and better target future strategies for their management and engage with the wider community across a range of activities, including citizen-science fauna monitoring activities” will be rolled out in 2016.

The Green Army is a program that pays participants aged 17 to 24 an “allowance” for the 20 to 26 weeks they are involved as well as providing suitable clothing and appropriate training in the work being done. The Warrumbungle project will be run by Landcare and Manpower Australia.
