Barnett Park, Redcliffs, is a fascinating recreation reserve, popular with walkers, runners and climbers. Te Awa Kura (Barnett Park) Regeneration Group are a dedicated group working to restore the reserve. The group meets fortnightly to tackle some of the pest plant species that populate the reserve - namely gorse, banana passionfruit and boneseed. They're also working with the City Council to plant areas of the steep-sided reserve.

The working bee will be from 9:30am-12:30pm, and we’ll be doing tasks related to plant maintenance around the reserve. Please note that we'll be walking for about 15 minutes up hill to reach the area we'll be working in - the reserve is very steep.

Bring: Your own gardening gloves, sturdy boots or shoes, a water bottle and sunhat. As part of our health and safety requirements, CVNZ requires volunteers to wear long sleeves and trousers as protection from the sun and vegetation.

We’ll supply tools, but you are welcome to bring your own - loppers or flax knives are most useful.

We'd love to see you there, so please register below. Contact Donna (dlusby@cvnz.org.nz) 021 457 568 for more information. 

COVID-19: We will be following the advice from government and local council on all Covid-19 restrictions.
