Get involved

Do your part for the community and join a Crown land board!

Members of the public can volunteer to participate in the management of Crown land as an appointed board member of a statutory land manager. There are volunteers involved in approximately 600 community boards offering up their time, skills and enthusiasm for the good of the community.

Becoming involved in the management of Crown land is a rewarding experience. It allows you to get involved with your local community and take care of land and public assets that are important to you, whether it’s a sporting park, community hall, heritage site, showground, racecourse or nature reserve.

Board membership is typically voluntary and individuals can be appointed for a term up to five years. But many board members enjoy it so much they apply to serve more than one term.
