Departure time:

Tawa Bush was once filled with noble trees of gigantic growth, clothed not only with their own evergreen foliage, but with innumerable ferns, mosses and orchidae, climbing up to their trunks. Beneath the upper canopy of forest trees - such as the rimu pine, the kaikatea, the totara, kahikatoa, rata and many others of enormous growth, there was an undergrowth of nikau palm (areca sapida) and the beautiful tree fern. Friends of Tawa Bush is a local community group working hard to restore the bush through repairing boundary fencing, signage, track development and maintenance, pest plant control, possum control and tree planting. 

On this day we will be maintaining sites that have been recently planted.

What to wear/bring: gumboots or sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, a hat/beanie, a drink bottle and some food.

What we provide: gloves, tools, high-vis vests, an experienced team leader, training. Get in touch to book a free ride from the Z station on Vivian Street.
