Western Springs, June 12th
Western Spring or 'Te Wai Orea' (The water of the eels) started life as a abundant river, fed primarily by water coming off the two Maunga Te Tatua-a-Riukiuta, Mount Albert and Maungawhau / Mount Eden. As Auckland’s population continued to grow the river was dammed and converted into a human made lake to provide water to the people of Auckland. Shortly after this demand outstripped the supply and the land went through many evolutions. Firstly as a camp, some was sold off to housing and eventually the boggy land was abandoned leaving it vulnerable to rubbish dumping.
Eventually the rubbish and weed choked lake became such an eye sore that Auckland Council decided to restore it. The now cleaned, weeded and replanted lake and land is home to many native and introduced bird and fish species like the long fin eel, shags, ducks and geese.
Today Auckland Council is making an effort to restore it back to some of its native beauty. So join us for a community planting day at Western Springs where we will be planting over 1000 native plants and trees. Be a part of making it a home to native species and a native paradise in the middle of the city.
Planting will be from 10am – 12pm followed by a free BBQ.
We will provide gloves and spades.

Milford, Jun 26th and 1 other date
The Wairau Estuary in Milford is connected to the inland Wairau Valley Catchment, which stretches several kilometres into the industrialised and commercial heart of the Wairau Valley.
Extensive environmental testing has revealed the presence of common contaminants in the watercourse from industrial land, high traffic roads, and recreational activities in the estuary. Despite this, up to nine native freshwater fish and crustacean species are found in this waterway.
With support from the passionate locals in Milford and Castor Bay and technical advice from Auckland Council’s Healthy Waters Team, the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board has committed funding to support a cleaner and healthier Wairau Estuary and beach in Milford.
Conservation Volunteers New Zealand is coordinating with community members and volunteer groups to improve the health of the stream by running rubbish clean-ups and planting days along the edges of the estuary. We’d love to have your help!
