See nature through new eyes this Conservation Week, 15-23 August 2020. Join us in celebration of Conservation Week 2020. Can you imagine a forest alive with the sound of tui and a clean stream full of inanga and eels? Porirua City was once covered with dense native forest. You can help us to restore mainland island sanctuaries such as Bothamley Park where some of the old-growth forest still stands.

Join us and the local community group, the Aotea Conservation Volunteers, at a joint working bee to restore native flora to the area. Tasks include planting native shrubs, trees, weeding and putting plant protectors on newly planted seedlings.
