There are plenty of ways to get involved

Join a bushcare group

Our bushcare groups always need more volunteers. Every bit you do makes a difference to our habitat. With groups currently active in four reserves across Manly/Lota, and a new group starting in Wynnum there should be something on near you. If not, start another one!

“By being part of my local bushcare group I’ve made a whole new group of friends, learnt more about our local environment, and helped out to keep it clean and healthy.”

Volunteer for BCCG

Bayside Catchment Creeks Group does a range of roles in the Wynnum/Manly/Lota area. We apply for and oversee funding that helps preserve and improve our local reserves. We are a voice for the environment in the area, and advocate for better environmental outcomes across a range of issues. We also run workshops and other programs designed to raise awareness and get people involved in our local environment.

“Bayside Catchment Creeks Group helps ensure that our local environment has a voice, and also helps the bushcare groups with funding and volunteer assistance. Being involved makes me feel good that I am helping out and doing something for our future.”

Come to our events

We have a range of events happening throughout the year, open to everybody. These include tree planting, regular bushcare meetings, social afternoons and bbqs, and markets. We would love to offer more activities in the community as well so join up and get involved to get the ball rolling.

“I had so much fun at the recent community tree planting day. Now when I go walking I can see ‘my’ trees and keep an eye on them as they grow.”
