Manager – Volunteer Programs
ACT Parks & Conservation Service
Alison has a diverse background including breaking in Scottish Highland cattle, working in eco-tourism and environmental regulation. She studied Land Management, Ecological Agriculture and Volunteer Program Management and is now in the most challenging yet rewarding job yet, creating strategies, structures and pathways for environmental volunteers in the ACT. Alison manages the ParkCare Initiative for ACT Parks and Conservation Service and has recently managed the transition to expand the program from a traditional ‘grass roots’ system of volunteer initiated activities to an inclusive diverse and dynamic volunteering program which welcomes community involvement in all aspects of parks management.
