This week Conservation Volunteers will visit Waitawa Regional Park, one of Auckland's Southern Parks where we will be carrying out a range of vital conservation activities.
Each of the Southern Parks of Auckland are varied and unique. Waitawa Regional Park is one of Auckland Councils most recent acquisitions and is being transformed into a recreational park with large areas of land being returned to native bush. Waitawa is located on the shores of the Hauraki Gulf and enjoys views out to Waiheke Island and beyond to Coromandel.
Activities we are likely to be helping out with here are planting, weed control, track construction and maintenance, beach clean ups, tidying amenity gardens and mulching.

Predator Control Training - Auckland Council and Conservation Volunteers New Zealand
Bring Back the Birds to our Auckland Parks!
Be an environmental champion - help us on this exciting project to save Auckland‘s native wildlife!
Animal pests (rodents and possums) compete with native birds for food and raid their nests for chicks and eggs. They also feed on a wide range of native plants, lizards and invertebrates. Your parks need your help to prevent this destruction
If you are interested in taking part, come along to one of our two training sessions.
When training is completed you’ll be assigned to one of the parks in which this programme operates where you’ll bait and reset traps and record the catches you make. You can choose when you walk your own track, so you can do it at a time that suits you. Ideally you will live or work locally to the pest control area. Once you’ve finished your line check, you enter your results into a web based database called Catch IT.
What to Wear: Sturdy boots or shoes, Long pants, long-sleeved shirt.

Atiu Creek Community Day
Conservation Volunteers New Zealand (CVNZ) welcomes everyone who shares our love of the outdoors and our commitment to conserving the environmento help us celebrate our upcoming 10 year anniversary in NZ.
The day will take place at the magnificent Atiu Creek Regional Park, a spectacular 450 hectare park overlooking the northern Kaipara Harbour. Surrounded by beautiful native forest, wetlands, bush, streams and heritage sites, it’s a true chance to get away from it all and experience nature at its best.
The Park is steeped in history and is host to 17 historic locations; including the extensive ridge pa (Maori fort) which was considered a strategic and vantage location for local tangata whenua (the Maori tribe) when engaging in warfare with invading enemies. There is also an abandoned 19th century oyster farm and numerous other early-settler European locations to explore.
Three nationally threatened bird species the NZ dabchick and brown teal live at the park and the area also has intact areas of coastal forest which are now rare nationally.
The day will involve planting native trees and shrubs followed by a BBQ. It promises to be a fun day and a great opportunity to see this stunning park and give back to your local environment!
Please phone 0800 56 76 86 or email email@example.com to book.

Morrinsville, August 13th
Ingham and Conservation Volunteers are teaming up both here in NZ and across the ditch on an exciting programme to Revive Our Wetlands.
This project will assist the Ngati Haua Mahi Trust in a bold undertaking to restore 3km of riparian zone of the Topehaehae Stream. The restoration site is located at the eastern end of Tahuroa Road and runs north towards Morrinsville and is surrounded by dairy support blocks. Invasive weeds will be removed, fencing installed and thousands of plants planted over the next 3 years. This important mahi will help to control erosion, filter sediment and nutrients before they enter the stream and provide a much-improved habitat for native fish, invertebrates, birds and reptiles.
