What is Bushcare?

Bushcare Group Walking Bushcare Logo

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. Learn more about the program here.
