BushCare Community is a BushCare Sunshine Coast sub-program consisting of a network of over 40 groups who share a common goal to conserve and restore our Sunshine Coast bushland in council's environment reserves.

Each group holds regular working bees throughout the year. No commitment is required, you can join-in where and when you can.

Read the profile book and working bee schedule to find out about all our groups.

BushCare Community volunteers enjoy the benefits of:

  • meeting new people and forming friendships that can last a lifetime
  • staying healthy and active 
  • onsite training and guidance
  • supply of equipment and materials
  • workshops and information sessions
  • recognition of efforts
  • social and networking activities
  • refreshments.
