Atiu Creek Community Day

Conservation Volunteers New Zealand (CVNZ) welcomes everyone who shares our love of the outdoors and our commitment to conserving the environmento help us celebrate our upcoming 10 year anniversary in NZ.  

The day will take place at the magnificent Atiu Creek Regional Park, a spectacular 450 hectare park overlooking the northern Kaipara Harbour.  Surrounded by beautiful native forest, wetlands, bush, streams and heritage sites, it’s a true chance to get away from it all and experience nature at its best.

The Park is steeped in history and is host to 17 historic locations; including the extensive ridge pa (Maori fort) which was considered a strategic and vantage location for local tangata whenua (the Maori tribe) when engaging in warfare with invading enemies. There is also an abandoned 19th century oyster farm and numerous other early-settler European locations to explore.

Three nationally threatened bird species the NZ dabchick and brown teal live at the park and the area also has intact areas of coastal forest which are now rare nationally.

The day will involve planting native trees and shrubs followed by a BBQ. It promises to be a fun day and a great opportunity to see this stunning park and give back to your local environment!

Please phone 0800 56 76 86 or email info@cvnz.org.nz to book.
