Bushcare and Volunteering

Bushcare Jan 2023

Camden Bushcare is an environmental volunteer program coordinated by Camden Council to encourage local communities to actively participate in managing and maintaining the remnant urban bushland areas in the Camden Local Government Area.

Bushcare provides recreation and education opportunities for people of all ages and abilities in the local community. It is also a great way to stay fit, meet new people, and be part of something meaningful all while making a difference to our local environment. 

Bushcare groups are led by qualified bushland supervisors and tools and materials are provided on site. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and the desire to be part of the team working to restore the unique heritage and character of Camden's bushland. 

Bushcare volunteers participate in the following activities:

  • Weed control;
  • Revegetation;
  • Bushland, river and creek restoration; 
  • Seed collection; and 
  • Training and workshops. 

Volunteers are welcome to join any of the seven Bushcare Groups currently working in bushland areas.
