Adopt a Bush For Life site

If you want to visit the same site regularly to see the impact of your efforts over time, you can adopt your own Bush For Life site.

You can work alone or with other people at your own pace with the support of a skilled local coordinator.

How do you adopt a site?

After initial training we will help you choose from over 300 established Bush For Life sites and put you in touch with the Regional Coordinator in your area. The Coordinator will meet you on site to get you started on the priority tasks and develop a plan of attack.  They will supply you with basic bush regeneration tools and safety gear, and help you get to know the site and its native plants.

What support is available?

At regular catch-ups your Regional Coordinator will guide you, answer technical questions such as plant identification, replenish your supplies and, if needed, organise a group activity with other volunteers. You can contact them at any time for advice. 

Requirements of adopting a site

First, you must attend our Bushcare Workshop. It also helps to attend Bush Action Team days before adopting a site to get practical experience in bushcare techniques. As little as three hours a month on your site can make a huge difference. 

Staying safe in the bush

We have a comprehensive set of policies and procedures which you are required to follow.  These are designed to keep you and the general public safe, and they are straightforward to implement.
