Bushcare volunteers

Concord Bushcare

The majority of the City of Canada Bay's volunteers work in groups for half a day per month, while others participate when time and circumstance allow. No prior experience of bush regeneration is required. Volunteers participate in bush regeneration activities on a voluntary basis.

Bushcare provides participants with a variety of wonderful benefits including:

  • Opportunity to meet people and make new friendships
  • Work outdoors at your own pace
  • Learn new skills in bush regeneration, project planning, site preparation
  • Learn about native plants and animals, ecosystem function, weed identification and control achievement and
  • Satisfaction in seeing an area regenerate and improve through your effort.

Before commencing volunteer activities, all individuals must complete the Registration Form and are asked to read Council's Bushcare Code. Volunteers receive no financial remuneration for their efforts, however the contribution volunteers make is highly valued by Council, the community and the natural area which is being rehabilitated.

Children are welcome. Parents should check with Council's Bushcare Coordinator regarding the site and the day's planned activities. A parent or supervisory adult (with parental permission) must accompany younger children. Teenagers 16+ are welcome to join a group alone with written consent from a parent. Teenagers under 16 wishing to join a group alone must have consent from Council's Bushcare Coordinator and written permission from a parent.
