Native Forest Restoration

*Native tree planting

*Free ferry ticket

*Beautiful location

*Chill vibe

We usually have a small team (sometimes 2 people sometimes 14 people) working in the conservation reserves, planting native trees and clearing exotic weeds depending on the time of year.

We go to different locations within the reserves, focussing on priorities we can manage and try to keep it fun.

I show you how to perform tasks and always happy to answer questions, talk about nature, restoration and whatever you're interested in.

When you contact me, I will email you with extra information you will need such as: What ferry to take, what you need to bring and where we'll meet.

I live on the Island.


Previous conservation/outdoor experience helps but not necessary.

Moderate level of fitness, able to work as a team and receive direction.

We take your safety very seriously but there can be hazards such as steep ground and sharp tools you need to be conscious of and careful of others around you.

For the Forest and Bird Reserve we have free ferry tickets, require you are vaccinated and we have a Health and Safety form for you to sign on arrival.

For the Council reserve we have a H&S form to sign, half the price of the ferry tickets are paid for so a ticket will cost you $21.
