Help NPWS reduce the amount of weeds that threaten sensitive environments in Marramarra National Park. This annual bush regeneration weekend is open to both experienced bushcare volunteers and people new to this work.

You’ll be busy in coastal saltmarsh, swamp oak floodplain forest and the mangrove and estuarine communities of the Hawkesbury River. You’ll do bush regeneration and help us clean up rubbish in the mangroves. You’ll also enjoy a guided tour of the saltmarsh and estuarine areas and a walk with the birds.

Bushcare volunteers have contributed to the environmental health of this beautiful park for over 10 years. It’s an opportunity to help our environment while increasing your wellbeing. You’ll meet like-minded people and receive on-site training in bush regeneration.

Nothing beats the deep relaxation you’ll feel by the campfire at the end of a good day’s work in the fresh air. This is a great chance to try something a little different in an amazing location.

It's a good idea to bring a day pack, insect repellent and torch.
