What is Bushcare?
The City of Hobart Bushcare program provides an opportunity for the community to work with the Council to make Hobart's bushland a better place.
Bushcare groups help enhance wildlife habitat, protect threatened flora, maintain and develop tracks, and educate the community. It's also a great opportunity for members to meet other like minded people, have a laugh, and learn a few new skills while you do.
Volunteering for only a few hours a year is all it takes to help make a difference to Hobart’s bushland areas. You can learn more about Bushcare here: About us.
