Help us build a Forest in the Heart of Wellington, a long term project in celebration of the Rotary Club of Wellington's Centenary which falls in 2021.

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.

The tasks we need help with each week are variable but activities may include: light construction jobs or propagating seedlings at our nursery in Tawatawa Reserve, weed releasing on the Mount Victoria planting site, or planting in the winter. You can find out more details by contacting us the week before you'd like to get involved. We'd love to have your help on this fantastic long-term project!
