Conservation Volunteering & Tree Planting

Have you ever thought about getting involved to help improve Bathurst’s natural areas? Join Council's Community Environmental Engagement Officer at a community tree planting day or a revegetation maintenance day. Give as much or as little time as you can spare – it all makes a difference to help rehabilitate our local rivers, creeks and woodlands.

Revegetation Maintenance Days 

Held every Thursday and Friday, help to maintain revegetation sites within Council's parks and reserves through weeding, mulching and planting. Contact Bill Josh on 0407 256 791 for park locations as they vary week to week.

Further Details

No experience is needed and all plants and equipment are provided. Please bring water and wear suitable shoes and clothing for being outdoors. Gardening gloves will be supplied, however if you have your own please bring them. The event will go ahead in light rain, so please bring a raincoat if required.
