About Bushcare - City of Hobart
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.
Bushcare groups are restoring, maintaining and protecting bushland in Hobart for generations to come. The efforts of Bushcare volunteers make a difference now and are helping to build a brighter future.
Founded in 1993, Bushcare is coordinated by the City of Hobart. Each week, the Council provides direct support to volunteers working within 17 Bushcare groups across the city, from Cornelian Bay to Wellington Park, Sandy Bay and beyond.
On average, 120 people volunteer for Bushcare each month. With additional field days and special events, Bushcare volunteers contribute over 3,000 hours per year to regenerating local bushland and raising awareness of the issues in their local area. Bushcare also provides support to schools and other organisations undertaking community-based care of the city’s bushland.
Bushcare volunteers are making a huge difference to the bushland areas they work through bush regeneration, track development and maintenance, and community engagement. Bushcare provides volunteers with a sense of purpose and an opportunity to be part of something meaningful, while having fun, making friends and learning something new.
