The Wingecarribee Shire is fortunate in having an exceptionally diverse range of flora, fauna, and geographical variances within the one catchment, with Council having care and control of more than 40 significant remnant bushland reserves totaling over 4000 hectares, as well as caring for a number of significant watercourses and wetlands.

Volunteer Bush Regenerators play an essential complementary role in Council’s management of this bushland. This role is primarily concerned with regeneration of degraded bushland areas and increasing the health of bushland within the Shire.

During the 2015-16 financial year Wingecarribee Bushcare volunteers worked 181 sessions, contributing a total of 3,099 hours of bush regeneration work worth $108,448. The Community Nursery volunteers continued to propagate local provenance native trees, shrubs and groundcovers with 11,020 being planted out on public lands in the Shire.

The Volunteer Bush Regeneration program is integrated with the works of Council staff, contractors and other community groups which all contribute to Council management of bushland on a catchment basis.
