Bothamley Park is a large Y shaped park which is sandwiched between the suburbs of Cannons Creek and Aotea in Porirua. Part of a long term restoration project run by Porirua City Council, the park has a walking track running its entire length and is currently in various stages of reforestation. Some areas of the park remain in old stand native forest, while other parts are planted with exotic species, and others still are in the process of being planted with young natives. Being located in close proximity to Belmont Regional Park, Bothamley is an important ecological corridor and is the home to a number of threatened bird and plant species.
On this day we'll be lending our support to the Aotea Conservation Volunteers to help them realise their vision of a vibrant healthy native forest in the heart of their neighbourhood. If you'd like to join in this regular working bee and have fun alongside our teams of volunteers then get in touch today, it'd be great to have your help!
