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.

New Zealand- Auckland, June 11th
Connecting People to Parks
Every Tuesday 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 an opportunity to get involved.
This week we are at Oakley Creek, an important wildlife corridor which reaches all the way from the Manukau harbour to the Waitemata. Even though it’s located in the middle of Auckland, it’s a lovely stroll through native bush along paths and wooden bridges. You’re walking through history; the Maori used the creek to reach inland from the inlet and there are many landing sites and signs of settlement along the banks. It is also the site of Auckland City's only natural waterfall!
Conservation Volunteers 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to book.

Waitawa is located on the shores of the Hauraki Gulf and enjoys views out to Waiheke Island and beyond to Coromandel.

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.
Bookings are essential. If you would like to register please call 0800 56 76 86 or email email@example.com
