- Departure time:
Join us for a planting day in the Wellington Town Belt to help build a Forest at the Heart of Wellington in celebration of the Rotary Club of Wellington's Centenary which falls in 2021. This is part of an initiative that will involve volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting and maintenance of more than 100,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt. The Rotary Club has already planted over 40,000 trees!
This projects complements and supports community-led pest control programmes, which will create important new habitat for native birds which are increasingly venturing beyond the protective fence of Zealandia.
So get outside and enjoy the best of the winter weather and help increase native biodiversity in our urban centre!
Meeting Point: The Victoria Bowling Club at the end of Pirie Street.
Meeting time: 9.30am – 1.00pm
