Tapora, Aug 13th and 2 other dates
This year Conservation Volunteers has made a commitment to plant another 10,000 trees at Ätiu Creek Regional Park to help restore this park back to native bush and achieve our aims of turning this area into a predator free peninsula. We have plenty of Community Planting Days coming up that we would love for you to join!
This beautiful and little visited park has extensive harbour frontage with large tracts of native forest supporting a range of flora and fauna which provides habitat for the nationally threatened New Zealand dabchick and brown teal. This is a stunning coastal area that is now under intensive regeneration. We would love for you to come out and escape from the city for the day to help restore this beautiful site by planting hundreds of native trees and shrubs along the gully to filter contaminants before they reach the waterway and provide important shade and habitat for native fauna. We can provide transportation on site from our office in Eden Terrace for a limited number of volunteers, please get in touch to learn more and book your spot. The activities will run from 10am to 12pm followed by a BBQ for all our volunteers!! Join our community planting day and bring the family for a fun day!

Manurewa, September 10th
The Papakura Stream Restoration Project is a catchment wide programme that will restore and protect this important waterway and the habitat for the diverse species that call this area home. The project’s aim is to restore and protect stream banks and water quality, as well as habitat for native species. This restoration will include fencing (with Future Posts – recycled plastic fence posts), planting native trees and shrubs, water quality monitoring, plant maintenance, and community engagement. In partnership with Manurewa, Franklin and Papakura Local Boards, restoration will take place on both public land, and private land, working alongside farmers and other landowners. This project will also require the support of the local community and the corporate community in the form of volunteering, sponsorship and partnerships.
On this day we will be planting native trees alongside the stream to provide food and habitat for native species, and to act as a buffer to prevent contaminants entering the waterway.
We would love for you to join us!
