Canterbury-Bankstown's natural environment is rich, diverse and unique, providing a valuable resource for local residents and visitors alike. Our natural environment is important for stabilising soil, improving water quality and providing valuable habitats for our native wildlife. In addition, natural areas are also important for their beauty, and the educational and recreational opportunities they provide.
Bushcare is a volunteer program that encourages residents to get involved - as a community based program, it's a great way to meet other residents while doing something worthwhile for the environment.
Together with the work carried out by us and contracted bush regenerators; Bushcare volunteers are making a significant contribution to the conservation and management of our valuable bushland.
Are you passionate about the local environment? Are you ready to roll up your sleeves to make a difference in the community? Then why not join other volunteers lending a hand! Volunteers are currently needed to help remove trees and weeds, plant native vegetation and maintain the wetland in various areas. The more people who help, the more work we can get done – and that will ensure our local environment thrives!
