Planting native coastal plants on sand dunes and in estuaries combats impacts caused by climate change. Increasing plant biodiversity prevents the erosion of beaches and maintains water quality. Reeds planted in estuaries provide habitat and feeding grounds for whitebait (inanga) and birds (fernbird and white heron). 

Join us in Porirua for weeding and re-vegetation of dunes and estuaries. 

Free transport provided from the Z Station on Vivian Street at 8:30am in town and the Porirua Train Station at 8:50am. Alternatively ask for directions directly to the site.
