Melrose, December 15th
Te Kawakawa Commons is a community run conservation effort on a small piece of land in Melrose behind Lyall Bay. This community garden and recreation area has been created by a committed community group to provide a sanctuary for local people and wildlife alike. Through the establishment of vegetable gardens for public use, the planting of native vegetation to encourage wildlife, and the building of a network of short tracks, the area has been transformed from a scrubby wasteland into a valuable community resource.
Brookby, December 16th
The Brookby Wildlife habitat project on the Auld farm has a mass revegetation project underway and to date the site has been planted out by many schools and various community groups.
The aim of the project is to regenerate native bush in the valleys and steep hillsides linking together some remnant bush lands.
The habitat restoration work will increase biodiversity values of the region as well as providing a good food source for the abundant birdlife found in the region such as tuis and wood pigeons and will protect the headwaters of the Papakura and Wairoa Streams.
Across the farm of 400 acres over 70 acres are under bush land.
This week the team will do a variety of tasks including cutting and pasting weed trees and planting.
Bookings are essential. Please call 0800 56 76 86 or email info @cvnz.org.nz for more information.

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.

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.
