Join up

If you live in Sydney’s north and you’re an avid gardener, join up to help restore the Garigal National Park bushland, near Davidson. This important volunteer work helps conserve key wildlife habitat.

Bush regeneration, weed and pest management

Volunteer groups meet weekly or monthly, on weekdays and weekends, all year round.

Easy. Suitable for adults and teens 16 years and over. Minimum level of fitness required.
Join up

Join one of several bushcare volunteer groups that run at different times and places throughout Garigal National Park.

Volunteers are making a significant impact on bushland recovery by controlling invasive weeds that threaten to suffocate native species. When you join a volunteer group, you’ll help with this important effort and make sure that local wildlife, which relies on native plants for habitat, will have a brighter future.

Volunteer bush regeneration activities include weeding, planting and propagation. Wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, enclosed shoes and a hat. Training, tools and professional support are provided. You’ll learn to identify native plants and weeds while enjoying the outdoors and actively supporting your physical and mental wellbeing. You’ll meet like-minded people who enjoy being active in nature and you’ll make a difference to our environment. Come along and give it a go!
