Wagstaffe bushcare invites you to volunteer to help us control weeds and clear out rubbish in the Wagstaffe area of Bouddi National Park.

Weeding and rubbish removal encourages the regeneration of the forest and other Australian native plants that provide the habitat for endangered species of Australian animals and birds.

You'll learn a lot about your local environment and protecting native plants and animals. Training and tools are provided, as are fresh air, like-minded company and the opportunity for a bit of exercise. You'll feel a great sense of achievement from this work. It's great if you have some gardening knowledge, but beginners with a desire to learn are very welcome too.

Wear closed-in shoes, long-sleeve clothing and a hat. It's a good idea to bring sunscreen, a raincoat, drinking water, snacks, lunch, gardening gloves and insect repellant. Tools and hard hat supplied.

Saving Our Species program

Australia is home to more than 500,000 animal and plant species, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. Saving our Species is a statewide conservation program that addresses the growing number of Australian animals and Australian native plants facing extinction.
