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.
Bushcare groups in Blacktown City
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.

Become a bushcare volunteer
Watch our short film to hear from our bushcare volunteers on what motivated them to join. New bushcare volunteers are always welcome. It's a great way to spend some time outdoors, and meet like-minded people. No experience necessary, all you need is a passion for getting outdoors and learning about our local environment.
All Bushcare groups in Blacktown City are supported by Council through the provision of bush regeneration training, supervision, plants, tools, technical advice and information on grants and other special projects. Volunteers generally work for 3 hours, one weekend a month.
