A group of dads from Russell Vale's latest project to help their community will take place on Saturday, February 23.

Members from Fathers of Russell Vale Kids (FORKS) will build an outdoor learning centre at Russell Vale Public School.

FORKS member Troy Kiefer said a sensor path and water feature would also be completed on Saturday.

"We are working in collaboration with the local indigenous community on the design," he said.

"We are looking forward to helping our kids and our community.

"The school also appreciates our support. The principal [Paul Cuthbertson] has agreed to come down and be one of our labourers on Saturday."

Mr Kiefer said a few local companies sponsor FORKS' projects.

"For the past four years we've just gone around and done as many projects as we can for our community," he said.

"We are a non-profit community organisation who believe that making better fathers makes better kids and a better community."

Those who would like to help on Saturday can drop by the school from around 1pm.
