Join the Conservation Volunteers NZ, Zealandia Te Maara a Taane, and Friends of Taupoo Swamp to get your hands dirty removing weeds in this unique habitat.

Wetland plants grow very quickly because their soils are warm and moist, however weeds also grow fast so we will be daylighting and hand weeding around plantings. It is therefore suggested you wear boots or sturdy shoes, sun protection (long-sleeved shirt/hat/sunblock) and bring a water bottle, snacks and lunch. 

Please register here if you would like to join us and bring your whaanau.

What to wear/bring: Sturdy boots, long sleeves, and long trousers. Ensure you pack warm clothes such as a jacket, beanie/sun hat, jumper and a rain jacket to protect you against wind and rain. Bring a full water bottle. We’ll provide gloves, tools, light refreshments, and sunscreen.

Free transport to and from Wellington and Porirua city centre is available but spots are limited (contact us to arrange a pick-up).
