The purpose of this building block is to have relevant projects that provide a benefit for Lamington National Park. Examples include revegetation projects, public events, education programs and materials. By working together with the community and volunteer organisations, projects can be guided/developed to benefit Lamington National Park and its stakeholders. Having structured projects and programs provide volunteers with a purpose for their time and also assist in implementing the management plan for the park.

Enabling factors

It is important that projects and programs are appropriate and work towards park management goals; are do-able by the volunteers; have a high chance of achieving success; and have a purpose understood by and supported by all involved.

Lessons learned

Conservation projects and programs must be tailored to the age and skill set of the volunteers. Park staff must also have realistic expectations about the supervisory role they play. The outcomes of the projects need to also be desirable by all parties so everyone is working towards their aspirations.
