Green Corps

Green Corps and Bicycle SA - working together to ensure the sustainability of South Australia's trails

 

Bicycle SA has a long history working with Green Corps on environmental projects that contribute to ensuring the sustainability of trails in South Australia.

Green Corps is an Australian Government youth development and environmental training programme for young people aged between 17 and 20 years. Green Corps provides young people with the opportunity to volunteer their time and effort to conserve, preserve and restore Australia's natural environment and cultural heritage.

Over the last few months Bicycle SA has been working with a team of eight Green Corps trainees to improve trails at Eagle Mountain Bike Park. The team have been busy hardening trail surfaces at the park to improve the longevity of the trails. They have also been controlling weeds, mapping weed populations and will soon be planting more trees in the area.

A joint initiative between Forestry SA, Bicycle SA and Green Corps will also see the team working at Cudlee Creek cutting new trails.

At the end of this six-month working training program the Green Corp team will graduate with a level one certificate in conservation land management.

Green Corps is administered by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations in consultation with the Department of the Environment and Water Resources. Since the programme began, more than 18,000 young Australians have joined Green Corps projects across Australia; more than 14 million trees have been planted; 8000 kilometres of fencing has been built; and more than 5000 kilometres of walking track has been constructed or maintained.
