Conservation Volunteering at Pt England - Tuesday 27 August
On this day at Point England Reserve we'll be focusing on plant releasing in areas that we have planted New Zealand natives within the last few years. This task is aimed to free the base of the young trees and plants from invasive weeds which would otherwise smother them.
This event is part of our Connecting People with Parks programme which runs every Tuesday and sometimes over the weekend. On this programme volunteers come to our offices ready typically for an 8am departure and we then take you out in our van to the project and return you no later than 4pm. Times vary on weekend projects (You can also meet on site if that suits you better). For all our projects you are assisted by a qualified team leader who guides you through the tasks and can help you identify and learn about native species of flora and fauna and conservation.
What to bring: Gumboots or closed toe shoes, appropriate clothing, rain and sun protective gear. We provide all tools and equipment needed for each activity. Limited transport available, make sure to book your seat. Please note: Children are to be accompanied and supervised by an adult.
Times are flexible. You can choose to come to one event or many.
