The Bushland Care Program is a partnership arrangement between Council and community volunteers who find reward in contributing to positive change in their local bushland areas.
The aim of the Program is to actively involve the community in the restoration of degraded bushland areas to reduce the impact of weeds. It is also a great way to meet new friends while caring for Noosa's environment.
Bushland care volunteers:
- learn about native plants
- weed bushland areas to allow regeneration
- assist in the recovery of threatened species
- enhance wildlife corridors
- attend workshops and learn new skills
- mentor local school students, corporate volunteers and international visitors
Currently 18 bushland care groups are registered in the Program. These groups hold regular working bees throughout the year at various locations around the Shire.
Being a bushland carer is satisfying work, and it makes a real difference to the quality of bushland habitat in local areas. The Program offers volunteers:
- a great outdoor working environment
- occasions to meet like-minded people
- training and support
- time to connect with nature
