As part of Student Volunteer Week we're running a community working bee with the Tanera Gully Restoration Project. The long-term aim of this project is to restore a neglected gully, overgrown with weed and littered with rubbish, that runs between Epuni Street and Tanera Park in Aro Valley.
Join us on Saturday 6th April 9:30 -1pm for some weeding and a bit of native planting too. Take a guided walk with the passionate volunteers of the Tanera Gully Restoration Project - learn about the history of the park, the native flora and fauna in the reserve and our bold vision for the future. This event is sponsored by HSBC.
What we provide: tools, gloves, hot drinks and morning tea provided as well as training and an experienced team leader. Free transport options available.
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 snacks.
So get outside this autumn and help restore Tanera Gully to its pre-1840 flora glories! Get in touch to book a free pick-up from the Z station on Vivian Street or meet us at 9:30 at the Tanera Crescent entrance to the park, near the Wellington Bowling Club.
