Bushcare’s Major Day Out is a national day designed to encourage us all to take part in the restoration and maintenance of our remaining bushland around Australia.
In 2016 the main date will be Sunday 11 September, and this is part of Landcare Week. However, the day for Bushcare’s Major Day Out is flexible, so individual sites can choose slightly different dates.
Bushcare’s Major Day Out is a day specifically designed to give of us the opportunity to find out what is being done and what can be done in our own neighbourhood. It’s a fun day where anyone, young and old can work alongside and learn from experts and experienced volunteers. There are a range of activities depending on the location; walks, planting, weed removal, photography workshops as well as native plant identification and well celebrated morning teas.
Bushcare’s Major Day Out is made possible because of the involvement of Land Managers and volunteers across Australia.
Just as Clean Up Australia Day has made us a litter conscious nation, Bushcare’s Major Day Out aims to make us conscious of the need to protect our bush while learning about the role we can all play in its continued care.
