Bushcare is a volunteer program that enables community members to participate in the restoration, enhancement and maintenance of natural areas within the City of Canada Bay.

Council's Bushcare program provides support to Bushcare groups and supplies all necessary training, supervision, tools, materials and equipment for their ecological projects.

Why we need Bushcare

The City of Canada Bay's natural areas require regular and ongoing attention to preserve their ecological value and biodiversity.

Bushcare sites

The City of Canada Bay area has a wide variety of natural areas where Bushcare groups work such as Sydney Turpentine-Ironbark Forest, foreshores containing remnant and restored sandstone vegetation, and estuaries with Mangroves and Coastal Saltmarsh communities.  

Current areas where Bushcare groups work include:  

  • Arthur Walker Reserve, Queen Elizabeth Park, Lovedale Place, Rothwell Park, Shadrack Shaw Reserve 
  • Quarantine Reserve, Werrell Reserve, Figtree Bay Reserve
  • Prince Edward Park and Cabarita beach, Wangal Reserve 
  • Brett Park, Thompson Street jetty
