Buschare, one of Moreton Bay Regional Council's Voluntary Conservation programs, provides community members with the opportunity to participate in hands-on conservation and restoration activities.
Bushcare groups play an important role in protecting and improving local bushland by participating in activities that conserve and protect the region's natural environment. Activities include:
- Plant & weed identification
- Tree planting
- Weed removal and control.
How do I get involved?
Volunteering with Bushcare is a great way to meet people with similar interests make new friends, and have fun, with activities tailored to suit your abilities - it's not all about hard work.
Bushcare volunteers also have the opportunity to participate in community education programs, training workshops, and social activities. Council officers will provide you with all of the information, equipment, training and support you will need to become a valuable Bushcare volunteer.
To register your interest in becoming a volunteer, please complete the volunteer online application and a team member will contact you shortly.
