BushCare 2014

BUSHCARE’S Major Day Out was celebrated on the Fraser Coast this year with a special event at the River Heads Reserve on Saturday 13th September

The aim of the event was to make residents aware of the need to protect the bush, while learning about the role everyone can play in its continued care with talks and presentations by bushland and wildlife experts.

Tourist FM/BayCity Gold Radio was there to provide the public address equipment as well as broadcasting the proceedings live on the air
