Volunteer Bushcare COVIDsafe Plan
Canterbury-Bankstown's natural environment is rich, diverse and unique, providing a valuable resource for local residents and visitors alike. Our natural environment is important for stabilising soil, improving water quality and providing valuable habitats for our native wildlife. In addition, natural areas are also important for their beauty, and the educational and recreational opportunities they provide.
Bushcare is a volunteer program that encourages residents to get involved - as a community based program, it's a great way to meet other residents while doing something worthwhile for the environment.
Together with the work carried out by us and contracted bush regenerators; Bushcare volunteers are making a significant contribution to the conservation and management of our valuable bushland.
