Connecting People with Parks - Eric Armishaw Reserve
Tuesday 22nd of June 8am-4pm (including travel time from our office)
Join us this month at Eric Armishaw Park, a coastal area consisting of saltmarshes, wetlands, a narrow coastal forest strip and a large grassed area. This reserve is adjacent to shellbanks, and mudflats where native birds including oystercatchers, pied stilts, dotterels and banded rails are known to visit or reside. We will be removing invasive pest plants that are threatening the biodiversity of the area. We’d love to have your help! This project is part of our Connecting People With Parks programme, in partnership with Auckland Council, 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 to identify and learn about native species of fauna and flora 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 12 years and under are to be accompanied and supervised by an adult.
8am – 4pm (Including transport from our office in Eden Terrace). You are welcome to meet us on site and only volunteer for part of the day provided you have your own transport.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
