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.

Tamaki, Jul 1st and 2 other dates
Conservation Volunteers in partnership with Tamaki Estuary Environmental Forum, Foundation North and Auckland Council are running a series of sea and land based community clean up events to assist with improving the health of the Tamaki Estuary.
Litter, particularly plastic, has a major impact on wildlife with birds and fish becoming entangled or mistaking the litter for food, eating the plastic and feeding it to their young. As the plastic breaks into small fragments in the water it leaches potentially toxic chemicals into our rivers and seas, threatening our ocean wildlife and us.
By coming out to one of our clean up days you will be making a difference to the amount of rubbish that enters this toxic cycle and creating awareness about steps that we can take to prevent further degradation by recycling and encouraging others to do so too.
Come and help on one or more of these projects and be a part of transforming your local river. We'd love to have your help.
Bookings are essential. Phone 0800 56 76 86 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

The Awaawaroa Stream and Wetland Reserve traverse the mid-eastern end of Waiheke Island in a roughly north-south line. They are home to a number of classified threatened species including tuna, giant kokopu, inanga, banded rail and spotless crake. A partnership group of community members, CVNZ, Forest & Bird, Council Biodiversity team and Local Parks staff have identified the Awaawaroa Wetland Reserve as a priority location for stream restoration on Waiheke Island and regionally.
With the help of community planting days, the wetland will have a restored native plant riparian buffer which provides a suitable habitat for native fish and bird species. In addition, wetland sedimentation will be reduced, and the water quality of the reserve will be improved. We’d love for you to come along for one or more days and help make a difference!

Waiheke is steeped in Maori and European history. The land was cultivated by Maori for centuries, once supplying the growing needs of early Auckland.
Help make a difference to this extraordinary habitat. Our conservation tasks for the week will include control of the climbing environmental pest plants japanese honeysuckle, and moth plant, servicing baitlines, mulching, cutting and pasting tobacco weed and pulling out weeds and unwanted plants from shellbanks to protect dotterel breeding areas.
