An integral part of restoring key native ecosystems is the removal of pest plants. Dunelands close to settlements are vulnerable to colonisation by invasive weeds which stabilise the sand, and in doing so displace native species such as pïngao and spinifex/kawhangatara. Native dune vegetation is now less common, and natural dune and bank systems are usually found only in remote locations. Join us for a day of coastal conservation as we remove weed species before they produce seeds and spread.

What to bring/wear: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, waterproof jacket essential. Layering and wearing a hat or beanie is a good way to stay warm. Bring a water bottle and some food.

What we provide: all tools and gloves provided as well as training and an experienced team leader. Free transport options available - get in touch to book a seat.
