Join a BushCare community group

There are over 40 BushCare groups across the Sunshine Coast holding regular working bees you can attend.

Join a BushCare community group

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 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.

For more information, contact the senior community conservation officer via council's customer service or [email protected].
