Attend a group working bee in February or March and take home a free native plant.

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

Get your hands dirty and remove environmental weeds and plant native trees, shrubs and groundcovers. Each group holds regular working bees throughout the year. No experience or commitment is required, you can join-in where and when you can.

Check out our map and working bee schedule to find a location or time to suit you.

How to join

To become a BushCare Sunshine Coast volunteer register online or contact the group using the details listed in the profile book or working bee schedule above.

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.

How to start a new group

If there is a council reserve without an existing group and you think it would value volunteer conservation, you can apply to start your own.
