It's that time again! Join us in Arthur’s Pass for our annual volunteer event to remove Russell lupins (and other pest plants), which make the river environment uninhabitable for many native plants and birds.


Your work really makes a difference for these local ecosystems and you get to experience small town community mucking in at its best in beautiful Arthur's Pass! 

There are three sessions over the weekend. Join us for one or all of these sessions.:

* Saturday 19th: 10:30 and 2pm
* Sunday 20th: 10am with an opportunity to stay on

Location: Meet at Klondyke Corner
