Community tree planting days

The Beaches to Bushland Volunteer Landcare Program provides a platform for the local community to foster a connection with their natural environment and encourages active community involvement as well as ownership of our natural assets. The program supports bushcare and landcare groups working in partnership with our Natural Areas Management Unit within Council managed conservation estate.

As part of the program we also support and encourage schools, universities, TAFE and community groups to join in with a tree planting day specific to their group.

Please note corporate groups can participate by scheduling a session for your group as a team building day etc. but some charges may apply, please contact the provider for further details.

Our natural areas team coordinate the event, prepare the planting site, provide the plants, materials, tools, plus on-ground supervision by qualified Bush Regenerators.
