Bushcare

Bushcare is a volunteer program that enables community members to participate in the restoration, enhancement and maintenance of natural areas within the City of Canada Bay.

Council's Bushcare program provides support to Bushcare groups (existing and new), and supplies all necessary training, supervision, tools, materials and equipment for their projects.

Why we need Bushcare

The City of Canada Bay's natural areas require regular and ongoing attention to preserve their ecological value and biodiversity.

Bushcare sites

The City of Canada Bay area has a wide variety of natural areas where Bushcare groups work such as Sydney Turpentine-Ironbark Forest, foreshores containing remnant and restored sandstone vegetation, and estuaries with mangroves and Coastal Saltmarsh communities.  

Current areas where Bushcare groups work include:  

  • Concord Bushcare - Queen Elizabeth II Park, Concord, Lovedale Place, Concord West and Quarantine Reserve, Abbotsford
  • Cabarita Bushcare - Prince Edward Park, Cabarita
  • Sisters Bay Bushcare - Drummoyne and Russell Lea 
  • Yaralla Bushcare - Concord West.
