Bushcare and Rivercare is all about restoring the resilience of natural areas on Council owned or managed land. Bushcare groups work in bushland reserves and Rivercare groups work in riparian areas near waterways. Bushcare and Rivercare groups are established when an existing reserve is identified as a high priority for restoration and there are a minimum of three interested volunteers willing to work 3 hrs once per month with support from Council’s Bushcare Team.
Unfortunately all Bushcare working bees are suspended indefinitely due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and operational challenges. We will notify all registered Bushcare volunteers when this suspension is lifted. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.
If you are interested in joining an existing group or forming a new group please have a look at the following pages or contact:

The Wingecarribee Shire is fortunate to have a diverse number of ecological communities and is considered a biodiversity hot-spot with many iconic species including Koalas, Platypus, Glossy-black Cockatoos and Mittagong Geebung.
Rivercare is about improving habitat, biodiversity and function of waterways.
