Have you ever thought about getting involved in your local community, meeting new people and helping the environment? Blacktown City Council can help you achieve these goals through our Bushcare program.
Volunteer Bushcare groups meet monthly at various reserves across Blacktown City, and complete bush regeneration activities such as planting locally native plants, removing weeds, and tasks which improve the natural surroundings. Bushcare groups involve residents that have an interest in the local environment, and who enjoy the outdoors, working with other like-minded people in the community to improve local bushland reserves.
