Launch: Bushcare Volunteering

Thursday 15 June from 18:00 to 20:00


An essential guide to recruit and retain bushcare volunteers

Volunteers live longer!

Volunteering reduces chronic health risks similar to eating 6 portions of vegetables everyday*.

Science shows us that social connection is as important for our health as nutrition and exercise. Can we infer volunteers get to eat more cake**?

Friends of Wireless HillThe Urban Bushland Council has spent the last 12 months learning lots about the current state of volunteering, in particular recruiting and retaining volunteers in Friends Groups and they want to let you know what’s been learnt.

As part of the Building Community Capacity to Care for Urban Bushland project, we are ready to launch a Volunteer and Recruitment Guide for Bushcare Friends Groups to assist with this essential process.

The evening will host a Welcome to Country by Daniel Garlett, catered bushfood inspired snacks, short talks by the initiators of the project, the participating groups and finally there will be a brief facilitated activity to assist you with your volunteer recruitment planning.

There will be cake too.
