Habitat Brisbane

The Habitat Brisbane program helps community groups restore natural habitats in parks, remnant bushland, wetlands and along waterways. This is part of Brisbane City Council's Community Conservation Partnerships Program. Habitat Brisbane groups consist of volunteers dedicated to keeping Brisbane clean, green and sustainable.

From 12 midday on Friday 3 July 2020, stage 3 of the Queensland Government's roadmap to easing restrictions will allow Habitat Brisbane volunteer activities (bushland restoration on Council land) to have a maximum of 100 people. Social distancing and hygiene practices, as outlined in the Community Restoration COVID-safe guidelines will be implemented at these activities and working bees.

Any events with over 100 people expected will require Council approval and a COVID-safe plan.

The group undertakes a diverse range of tasks including:

  • removing weeds and rubbish
  • establishing native plants
  • reporting new sightings of wildlife including squirrel gliders, koalas, wallabies, microbats and boobook owls
  • reducing illegal dumping through community awareness and education
  • improving the attractiveness of natural areas for visitors
  • drawing people together to create an increased sense of community.
