Conservation Volunteering at Pt England - Sunday 19th January
Conservation Volunteers New Zealand have a series of ongoing events focused on improving the environment around the stream in Te Whanake/ Pt. England Reserve by getting rid of invasive weeds and replanting the areas with native plants. This is part of a partnership around protecting water quality and the habitat of the long-fin eel which is a taonga species and a strong indicator of water quality. This week we will be removing invasive plant species and plant releasing to give the best chance of survival to the thousands of native trees planted here in the past two years.
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.
