City of Hobart Bushcare Fortnightly News Update
Hi Bushcarers, thanks to everyone who attended the National Volunteer Week Caring for our Environment Photo exhibition. I was thrilled to see volunteers from Bushcare, Landcare, Wildcare, Coastcare, the Tasmanian Land Conservancy and more come together to celebrate environmental volunteerism. A big congratulations to all the photo competition winners, particularly our young carers whose photos were incredibly inspiring. As Winter approaches, don't forget to take advantage of our Bushcare special morning/afternoon teas. It's a great way to brighten up a Winter working bee!
- Lisa Cawthen, Bushcare Coordinator

Volunteer Bushcare Supervisor Training
Thur 2 June, 10:30am - 12:30pm, The Glass House Meeting Room, via Town Hall Car Park off Elizabeth Street, Hobart.
Learn what is involved in becoming a volunteer Bushcare Supervisor for your group. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the program, work place health and safety and group management. Any Bushcare group volunteer is welcome to attend. This is the first step in being able to supervise your group. RSVP to the Bushcare Coordinator.
Thanks to everyone who has agreed to be a back-up first aider for their group's Bushcare working bees. Back-up first aiders provide an important role at working bees supporting the Bushcare supervisor (who themselves may need first aid). If you have agreed to renew your first aid, but have yet to book in, please do so as soon as practical.
