Bushcare Volunteers

Bushcare is a social activity, a fun way to spend time in the great outdoors while undertaking a little physical activity to help maintain our bushland reserves.

All equipment and supervision provided. See the 12 Bushcare Groups for meeting dates and times.


What do volunteers do?

Volunteers are rehabilitating publicly owned natural bushland.

North Sydney has an active Bushcare program of approximately 150 volunteers working in 12 groups around the reserves.

You too can get involved in a bush regeneration group, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife with Wildlife Watch, propagate native plants, create a Native Haven and install a nesting box.

The benefits of being a Bushcare volunteer:

  • great outdoor working environment,
  • healthy, active and fun activities,
  • meet like-minded people and enjoy relaxed social events,
  • lots of training opportunities, a variety of expert-run workshops, plus guided bushwalks,
  • a sense of personal achievement through community involvement.

Volunteers and other interested members of the community can receive our quarterly Bushcare Newsletter.


How do I get involved?

There are 12 Bushcare groups - and all would love to have YOU join them!

They meet weekly, bi-monthly or monthly around the North Sydney area (see the map below).

A qualified Supervisor is present at all group sessions and provides: on-site training, gloves, tools and morning tea.

You will need to bring: sturdy non-slip shoes, long sleeves, pants/trousers, a hat, and water to drink.
