Manukau, January 22nd, 2020
Ngati Otara Park, Manukau. The biggest sports park in Otara is at the hub of a vibrant community and is well used for a wide range of sports and recreational activities. However, it also suffers from the accumulation of litter. There have been successful clean-ups over the last few years, with an aim of educating people about the problems of litter, but also to get the community involved in caring for the environment.
Come join CVNZ to help clean up the litter before in enters the Tamaki Esutuary.

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.
This week we will be visiting Eric Armishaw Resrve in Pt Chevalier. On the shoreline of the Waitemata Harbour, Eric Armishaw Park is home to many migratory shorebirds including Little Pied Cormorant, White Faced Heron and Bar-Tailed Godwit. Over the past 2 years, volunteers have been clearing invasive weeds and replanting with native plants to provide improved habitat for these and many other species. We'd love your help today to continue this important work in a bid to bring back more birds to this and surrounding parks.
Each park has its own special characteristics, plants and wildlife and the conservation challenges for each area are very varied, so it’s a great chance to learn about biodiversity and how we can all make a difference to our environment.
Join us and help out your local parks.
Phone Siobhan on 0800 56 76 86 or email email@example.com to book. Bookings are essential.

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.
