Coastcare and Bushcare
The City of Mandurah has six Coastcare and ten Bushcare groups consisting of volunteers from the community. These volunteers are involved in a variety of activities for particular coastal and bushland reserves, with the aim of protecting and restoring the natural environment.
Each group has enthusiastic and willing volunteers who’s desire and passion is to conserve, protect and promote natural resource management within the City of Mandurah. Volunteers help raise the community’s appreciation for their natural environment.
The City of Mandurah's Coastcare and Bushcare Groups evolved as a result of local community members wanting to participate in regular environmental activities. Coastcare and Bushcare volunteers provide an important resource to the City of Mandurah in achieving improved environmental outcomes. They contribute to on-ground works and often spend significant amounts of time each week working towards environmental goals.
