Volunteer and Advisory Groups
The City of Mandurah has ten Bushcare groups and six Coastcare groups. Both groups consist of volunteers from the community who are involved in a variety of activities for particular bush and coastal reserves. Their aim is to protect and restore Mandurah's natural environment.
The City of Mandurah Bushcare and Coastcare started from local community members seeing a need to create opportunities for residents to participate in regular environmental activities. The volunteers provide an important resource to the City of Mandurah and contribute in on-ground works. They spend significant amounts of their own time looking after the bushland and coastal reserves.

The objective is to represent the diverse views of the community on conservation and environmental matters in a democratic manner.
