�Right across Australia, the Green Army is making a real difference to the environment and local communities through projects such as restoring and protecting habitat, weeding, planting, cleaning up creeks and rivers and restoring cultural heritage places,� he said.
Local projects will focus on promoting, protecting and conserving national and world heritage sites, as well as help support the protection and recovery of threatened species.
Government is budgeting $700 million for Green Army over the next four years.
�We�ve had solid interest from the community in joining the Green Army in Pearce and we are seeing some local projects come off the ground,� Mr Porter said.
Information sessions about how to get involved are running throughout August across Australia.
