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.
