Join us for a day of volunteering on Mount Victoria and help us grow 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, bringing the total number of trees planted by Wellington Rotary to 100,000. 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, tasks may vary but you can expect some planting, invasive weed removal, collecting rubbish and putting on plant protectors.
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 - we have multiple sites on Mt. Vic so get in touch to find out exactly where to meet the team.
Each week we also require help propagating seedlings at our nursery in Tawatawa Reserve where we grow plants for the Mount Victoria site. We'd love to have your help on this fantastic long-term project! Get in touch for more information.
