Join Conservation Volunteers and One Tree Planted as we celebrate Earth Month. For Earth Month 2023, we will kick off the planting season by planting up to 1,000 native plants to protect a wetland at the Papatoetoe Pony Club in Brookby. This wetland feeds into the Papakura Stream and has the potential to be an important habitat for our native species and a filter for water that makes its way into the stream and eventually to the Manukau Harbour. This is part of the wider Papakura Stream Restoration Project which aims to improve the health of this important waterway and increase tree cover and habita across the catchment. Since the project began in 2021, 53,000 native plants have been planted in the catchment with a further 37,000 plants to be planted in winter 2023. we'd love your help.
This event is run by Conservation Volunteers New Zealand and is generously funded by One Tree Planted.
BOOKINGS ARE ESENTIAL. This event will run from 9.30am - 1.30pm. Times include sign up, induction, planting and a sausage sizzle. CVNZ will supply all tools and equipment needed. Transport is available from our office in Eden Terrace. Please contact Gemma at email@example.com for more details.
