Bushcare Volunteers

Bushcare Volunteers working

Hunter’s Hill Council Bushcare Volunteers learn and work together to improve the health of our urban bushland and increase the number of native plants and animals, whilst creating beautiful spaces for our community to enjoy. Sessions are held every month, and all ages are welcome. Come and join us! Learn something new and exciting about your local bushland!

What you will need

No experience is necessary, as Council will provide all of the training you will need. Our experienced bush regeneration professionals will cover everything from safety induction, and suitable training, to plant and animal identification and various weed control measures.
