Tapora, Aug 28th and 7 other dates
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.

Porirua, August 29th
Bothamley Park is a large Y-shaped park which is sandwiched between the suburbs of Cannons Creek and Aotea in Porirua. Part of an award winning long term restoration project run by Porirua City Council, the park has a walking track running its entire length and is currently in various stages of reforestation. The environment in the park is a mixture of old-stand native forest, ornamental exotic trees, and regenerating native bush. Being located in close proximity to Belmont Regional Park, Bothamley Park is an important ecological corridor and is the home to a number of threatened bird and plant species.

Come lend a hand to the Perimeter Vegetation Team Zealandia, the world’s first fully-fenced urban ecosanctuary. The long term goal of Zealandia is to restore the forest and freshwater ecosystem as closely as possible to its pre-human state. The 225 hectare ecosanctuary is a groundbreaking conservation project that has reintroduced 18 species of native wildlife back into the area. Check out: https://www.visitzealandia.com/About

Come join us for a planting day at Rangituhi/Colonial Knob and help contribute to some of the last remaining original native forest in the Tawa-Porirua basin.

Clevedon, September 4th
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.
For more information on this project please call Conservation Volunteers on 0800 56 76 86 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
New Zealand- Auckland, September 5th
Connecting People to Parks
Every Tuesday and every second weekend 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.
This week we are at Waiatarua Wetland Reserve in Remuera. The wetland is the largest urban wetland remaining in Auckland and plays an important role in filtering pollutants from surface and storm water before it flows out into the Orakei Basin.
Conservation Volunteers NZ experienced team leaders guide the programme and aim to teach volunteers about all aspects of conservation, including plant identification and planting techniques.
Join us and help out your local parks.
Phone 0800 56 76 86 or email email@example.com to book.
Owhiro Bay, Sep 6th and 3 other dates
Help us build a Forest in the Heart of Wellington, a long term project in celebration of the Rotary Club of Wellington's Centenary which falls in 2021.
This project involves volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting of 65,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt on Mount Victoria, bringing the total number of trees planted by Wellington Rotary to 100,000. This project will create a substantial new habitat for native birds which are increasingly venturing beyond the protective fence of Zealandia.
Island Bay, September 19th
Located in Island Bay, the Paekawakawa Reserve is an example of a success story for the local community. This small piece of land was purchased by the Island Bay Natural Heritage Charitable Trust in 2006 when it was up for grabs for development. Once the Trust attained the land, they placed a QEII Covenant on the reserve and commenced to develop the area into a safe haven for native trees and birds, as well as for the local community.
