In conjunction with Mountains to Sea we're excited to be holding a cleanup day in Bothamley Park.  Mountains to Sea Wellington delivers inspiring freshwater and marine education programmes for schools and communities across the greater Wellington region. 

Shortjaw kokopu have been found in Te Awa Iti, the stream running through Bothamley Park. They are the rarest of the five whitebait species, usually found as only as solitary fish or in low numbers at any given site.  The other whitebait species also found here are inanga, banded kokopu, giant kokopu and koaro. All stormwater drains feed into the city's streams and out to Porirua Harbour so contaminants like paint, car wash suds and plastics often enter the stream. Join us for a day cleaning up this precious resource and help to protect this taonga. We will be working alongside students from Natone Park School.

What to wear/bring: Sturdy boots are essential (tramping boots or gumboots), long sleeves, and long trousers. Ensure you pack warm clothes such as a jacket, beanie, jumper and a rain jacket to protect you against wind and rain. Bring a full water bottle and snacks!

What we provide: a fully trained team leader, gloves, tools and training. Free transport to and from Wellington or Porirua city centre available - contact us to arrange a pick-up.
