The Montecasino Bird Gardens is no longer able to accommodate school community service children as volunteers at the Bird Gardens, as we have partnered with Unisa (University of Southern Africa) and have developed a tailor made volunteer program for their Nature Conservation Students.  We therefore, no longer have the capacity to take in school community service children. This will be effective from 1 January 2014.
