Join us for a day of volunteering on Mount Victoria and help us create a Forest in the Heart of Wellington! This project involves volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting of 65,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt on Mount Victoria. This project will create a substantial new habitat for native birds which are increasingly venturing beyond the protective fence of Zealandia.
At a working bee the aim is to restore habitat for wildlife and to leave a legacy for the people of Wellington through the planting of native trees and shrubs, invasive weed removal and collecting rubbish. Our aim is to create a greener healthier environment within Wellington City, and show-case to the nation how humans and nature can thrive in the same place.
What to wear/bring: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, a hat/beanie, waterproof jacket, water bottle and food.
What we provide: an experienced team leader, tools and gloves. Ask about our free transport options or meet the team on site.
Meeting point for the day to be advised closer to the time.
