Nga Uruora – Kapiti Project is a community based conservation project with a big work program and an even bigger vision. Set up in 1997 to reverse the drastic decline of coastal forest, their aim is to create a continuous ribbon of bird-safe native forest running from Pukerua Bay to Paekakariki.

The Paekakariki Escarpment is an exposed, steep coastal cliff and contains remnant and regenerating coastal forests, grey scrub, and flaxland. Join Conservation Volunteers NZ as we help Nga Uruora with a variety of tasks such as weeding, planting, improving lizard habitat and trap monitioring.

What to bring/wear: sturdy boots essential, long sleeves and pants, a hat and a waterproof jacket. 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 from our office in Melrose or from the Z station on Vivian St - get in touch to book a seat as places are limited.

So join us as we help to protect this stunning coastal landscape.
