If you enjoy getting your hands dirty then join us for a day at our nursery where we are growing thousands of native seedlings destined for our Forest at the Heart of Wellington project on Mount Victoria.
This project involves volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting of 65,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt, bringing the total number of trees planted by Wellington Rotary to 100,000. This project will create a substantial new habitat for native birds which are increasingly venturing beyond the protective fence of Zealandia.
Activities include re-potting seedlings, some identification and labelling of plants and weeding.
We provide: an experienced team leader, tools and gloves, training, free transport if required.
What to wear/bring: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, jacket, hat/beanie, water and lunch
Meet at the Tawatawa carpark, opposite #19 Murchison St at 9am or get in touch to arrange a free pick-up. Option to join the team for trap clearing on Mt Victoria in the afternoon. Please note if you are taking our transport we will drop you off AFTER the trap clearing at around 2:30 - 3pm.
