Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: War on Trauma

In the War on Trauma we care for hurt people. We understand the importance of safety, of nutrition, of connection to community, of addressing loneliness, of the power of being in nature.  Being locked in jail for drug-related offences doesn’t change the underlying reasons for why someone has addiction issues. It just amplifies the trauma. And amplified trauma leads to drug harm.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is seeking volunteers to join Friends of Cudgen Nature Reserve, who meet once a month to undertake bush regeneration in the reserve.

‘Volunteering in the reserve is an opportunity to meet like-minded people and to develop skills in bush regeneration,’ said NPWS Tweed-Kyogle Area Acting Manager, Stephen King.

‘Friends of Cudgen Nature Reserve assist the NPWS to control weeds and to plant trees which provide habitat for koalas and other significant species in the reserve.’

‘If you have a spare two to four hours then come along to one of the upcoming Saturday work days on February 14 and March 14.

On March 14 the group plans to plant 100 koala food trees in the reserve.’

For further information or to be placed on a mailing list contact the NPWS on 66708605 for go to the volunteering page of the NPWS website.
