Bushcare's Major Day Out
July 26, 2012 at 5:12 PM
Just as Clean Up Australia Day has made us a litter conscious nation, Bushcare’s Major Day Out aims to celebrate our concern and love for the bush and educate us all about the role we can play to care for it.
Bushcare’s Major Day Out on Sunday 9th September provides an opportunity for Bushcarers all over Australia together at designated sites, and to encourage those who’ve never tried Bushcare before, to give it a go. It’s a fun day where anyone, young and old can work alongside friendly experts and experienced volunteers. Afterwards a morning tea will be enjoyed by all.
The event was first held in Willoughby in 2009 after Willoughby resident and long term Bushcarer, Don Wilson, came up with the idea. It was so successful that a second event was held in Willoughby that year.
From then on it has become a yearly event. Last year people in different states joined in. This year the aim is to have over 100 city and country groups across Australia participating in the event.
