In response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and with the health, safety and wellbeing of our volunteers and community in mind, we have temporarily suspended our programs and events with our environmental volunteers. Council are working to move some events and workshops online. Check out what's on offer.
We are fortunate to call the magnificent Sunshine Coast home. From the beach to the hinterland, we have diverse habitats home to many flora and fauna. BushCare volunteers play a significant role in supporting this - wherever and whenever you volunteer, you'll make a difference!
BushCare Sunshine Coast (previously Community Nature Conservation Program) supports the community to conserve and restore our natural bushland in council's environment reserves. It is a great way to make a positive impact on the environment around you, and you will also be able to meet new people, stay healthy and active, learn new skills and connect with nature.
You can join our 2,000+ BushCare volunteers who annually achieve together:
- planting 20,000+ native trees, shrubs and ground covers
- 1,600+ wheelie bins of weeds composted
- restoring 170 hectares of bushland
- creating habitat corridors
- restoring our local waterways
- building resilience of our dunes.
