- Meet on site or if you need a ride, get in touch to book a pick-up from the Z station on Vivian Street or our office in Melrose
- Departure time:
Dunelands close to settlements are vulnerable to colonisation by invasive weeds which stabilise the sand, and in doing so displace native species such as pïngao and spinifex/kawhangatara. Native dune vegetation is now less common, and natural dune and bank systems are usually found only in remote locations.
Join us for a day of coastal conservation as we remove weed species before they produce seeds and spread and help us to protect this precious habitat!
What to bring/wear: sturdy boots/footwear essential, long sleeves and pants, a hat. Bring a water bottle and some food.
What we provide: all tools and gloves provided as well as training and an experienced team leader.
lf you would like to join us, please make a booking online and meet our team outside Maranui Cafe at 9am on Monday 7th January.
Please note our office is closed for Christmas 21st Dec and re-opens on 7th January so you may not receive a response over that time. Thank you
