Karori, March 2nd
Karori Wildlife Sanctuary, otherwise known as Zealandia, is Wellington’s premiere environmental project. Situated in the heart of the city and enclosed by an 8.6 km long predator proof fence, it provides a safe haven in which some of New Zealand’s most endangered birds, reptiles, and insects are thriving. Our tasks inside Zealandia include keeping the perimeter fence clear of vegetation, wood chipping, track construction, and many other things which are important to the ongoing success of the sanctuary. We don’t always have our heads in the bushes though, and there’s sure to be time in which you can just wander through the forest keeping your eyes peeled for a colourful kakariki, a prehistoric takahe, or a sun bathing tuatara. http://www.visitzealandia.com/
Churton Park, March 3rd
Located near the upper tributaries of the Porirua Stream, Lakewood Reserve has undergone a radical transformation by the Churton Park Revegetation Group. Since 2004, over 12000 native plants have been planted, and the habitat has changed from mainly exotic species into a healthy native riparian environment
Tapora, March 6th
CVNZ is excited to announce a 10 year commitment to Atiu Creek Regional Park, a spectacular site overlooking the northern Kaipara Harbour. In collaboration with Auckland Council we’ll be managing the restoration of key areas within the park, and welcome volunteers to join us, experience nature at its best and share in this exciting new venture.
Surrounded by beautiful native forest, wetlands, streams and heritage sites, Atiu Creek presents opportunities for volunteers to get involved in conservation tasks including planting, weeding and mulching around native trees, removing invasive pest plants, fence removal and repairs, seed collection, plant propagation and creating walking tracks. The team will be staying in a cottage located on the Park.
For more information and to register please call 0800 56 76 86 within New Zealand or +64 9 623 7287 internationally or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Connecting People to Parks
Every week Conservation Volunteers are out and about at different parks around Auckland.
It’s part of an initiative between Conservation Volunteers New Zealand and the Auckland Council to help bring biodiversity back to our central parks and to give people who are interested in conservation a chance to get involved.
Come join our team at Johnson Reserve in Glenn Innes. This week we will be plant releasing to give young native plants their best chance of survival. We will also do some water testing in the area to determine the health of the local stream and help us to understand what makes a stream healthy.
Monitoring water quality can contribute to improving streams for fish and assessing how a stream responds to changes such as increased riparian planting, weed removal or removal of rubbish and other pollutants.
Join us and help out your local parks, we'd love to have your help.

Waharau Regional Park
Much of the area that now forms Waharau was cleared of forest at the turn of the 20th century to form farms. Poor soils and steep ground led to their abandonment in the 1930s and gradual reversion to forest. The park was opened in 1979 by the late Maori Queen.
Lower slopes are covered in manuka with high species diversity of the ‘lower’ plants such as mosses, lichens and liverworts. Higher ground holds regenerating mixed kauri and beech forest. Tapapakanga is a 121ha coastal farm park. It holds an excellent example of a Maori stonefield gardens and two pa sites. Large spreading pohutakawa are a feature along the coastline. Steeper ground has now been fenced to remove grazing and allow the understorey to regenerate.
This week we will be helping with track maintenance and predator control at the park to keep pest species out of areas of revegetating forest.
