What is Bushcare?

Bushcare Group Walking Bushcare Logo

Bushcare is a community-based program in which volunteers help regenerate and preserve Hobart’s bushland, with the assistance and support of Council.

Through the Bushcare program we work to protect local biodiversity, undertake activities that help to maintain ecosystem services and enhance wildlife habitat. There's a Bushcare group working in our bushland reserves every weekend and there's bound to be one in your local area. Bushcare Groups

Qualified Council officers provide training in bush regeneration techniques and safety.  Supervisors attending Bushcare activities bring the Bushcare trailer, which is stocked with tools and equipment, as well as tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits!
