Beaches to Bushland Volunteer Restoration Program

2013 QLD Landcare award finalist for "Partnering with Landcare"

Supporting Gold Coast Bushcare and Landcare groups since 1999


Download and print the Beaches to Bushland brochure and calendar here to view group locations, dates and times.  You can also find out more about the support the groups receive and the benefits of joining - Click here 

The Gold Coast's beautiful natural environment allows us to enjoy a lifestyle like no other city.  By volunteering in a Bushcare or Landcare group you can help protect, maintain and enhance our natural areas and make a difference to your local natural environment.  Meet like-minded people and learn new skills that can be applied in your own backyard.

The program aims to;

  • Connect community and conservation
  • Improve the integrity, structure and health of the Gold Coast native vegetation so that ecosystems can function sustainably
  • Encourage active community involvement to manage bushland areas

You can play a part in protecting these areas by joining a group and participating in activities such as;

  • Planting native trees where required
  • Identifying and controlling environmental weeds
  • Identifying and encouraging native species
  • Maintaining your site.

Group works are coordinated by the City's Natural Areas Management Unit
