Join Conservation Volunteers NZ on our Papakura Stream Restoration Project. This new project aims to restore and protect stream banks and water quality, as well as habitat for native species, through fencing (with Future Posts – recycled plastic fence posts), planting native trees, water quality monitoring, and community engagement on both public and private land. On this day we will be caring for thousands of native trees and shrubs that have recently been planted. Once our native trees are planted, we need to continue caring for these trees for the next 4-5 years to ensure they have the best chance of survival. Caring for these trees can be a mammoth task, and we need your help! Come along and help us release our newly planted trees from strangling weeds. For this volunteer day you are welcome to meet us onsite, or at our office in Eden Terrace to get a ride in our van. Seats are limited so please contact Gemma at info@cvnz.org.nz to reserve a seat.


We provide all tools and equipment. Please note: Children 13 years and under are to be accompanied and supervised by an adult. What to wear: Sturdy boots/shoes or gumboots, long pants, long-sleeved shirt, bring with you a sun hat, waterproof jacket.
