Departure time:

CVNZ is assisting the Whitireia Restoration Group in restoring the dunes of the park and creating a safe habitat for marine birds. Boneseed grows on sand dunes, scrubland, coastal cliffs, offshore islands and even rocky outcrops. It quickly forms an incredibly dense cover that shades out everything else and can limit access to coastal areas. A single boneseed bush can produce 50 000 seeds every year and will grown in dense stands, excluding most other plants. 

On this day we will be removing boneseed and other invasive weeds such as karo and gorse. All tools and training is provided. Free pick-ups available from Wellington City and Porirua or meet the team on site (ask for directions to the meeting point).

What to wear/bring: Sturdy boots are essential, 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 the city centre is available (contact us to arrange a pick-up).
