Please note: We take the safety of our volunteers as paramount and participants for this Moreton Bay Regional Council Program need to provide an "Expression of Interest" before arriving at a Bushcare site. New volunteers will be provided with an information as well as site safety induction by the supervisor. You can complete an Expression of Interest at the following site below.
If you are a current Bushcare volunteer, you need to update your training on an annual basis to ensure you are safe at the Bushcare site and are covered by insurance from the MBRC. They will also provide volunteers with updates and a volunteer newsletter. You can update your training by clicking on the button below:
We currently have 4 Bushcare sites at Hays Inlet, Chelsea Street Reserve, Nathan Road Wetlands and the Deception Bay Conservation Park. If you would like to volunteer for any of the sessions, please review the calendar of events where you can review the schedule for each site as well as obtain contact details for the site supervisor.

The Moreton Bay Regional Council sponsors various Bush Care Groups across the region. At various sites volunteers turn up on event dates to carry out supervised bush care activities. These activities can vary from light weeding, to planting to erosion control or even mulching. The work is set up by experienced site co-ordinators whose expertise and knowledge of the area to keep everyone busy, safe and entertained.
So, if you want to make a difference and have a spare couple of hours let us know via contacting our supervisors and we will be glad to have your assistance. And remember, you don't have to come every time - just when you can! We promise you it will be a rewarding experience!
