Volunteering

Bushcare Volunteer Groups 

Volunteer with us and help improve our local bushland while enjoying the benefits of working alongside other like-minded community members.
 
Our bushcare volunteers help manage our area’s remnant bushland by mitigating the effects of vegetation fragmentation, urban runoff, invasion of garden species and noxious weeds (such as lantana and privet), vandalism (including tree poisoning and rubbish dumping) and feral animals.
 
If you would like to participate, learn new skills, contribute to improving the diversity of Georges River’s indigenous native flora and help create habitat for our native animals, contact Council or visit the Georges River Council Bushcare Volunteers facebook page. Volunteers are offered training and supervision from Council’s qualified bush regenerators. Tools and equipment are provided by Council.
