Bushcare Volunteering


The 2022 Bushcare Events brochure provides information to all community members on Council’s bushland and bush regeneration events throughout the year.

All residents are encouraged to participate and learn about the resilient bushland across the Local Government Area and what we can do to protect and enhance it.


Please keep checking our Whats On Events page for upcoming events.

Bushcare Corporate Program

Georges River Council's Bushcare Corporate Program fosters partnerships between the community, government and business to better manage Council's natural assets. 

Corporate volunteers are placed at project sites to participate in an environmental activity. This may include planting native species, removing weeds from bushland or cleaning up beaches, foreshores and reserves across the LGA. 

Corporate groups find this kind of program to be a good opportunity to raise community awareness of local environmental issues. It improves employee engagement by being part of something that is more than the work they undertake. Corporate volunteers will leave their Bushcare volunteering day with a better understanding of local biodiversity and environmental issues impacting our bushland reserves. 

To find out more and apply, please visit the Bushcare Corporate Program web page.
