About The Event
This organisation is working towards healthier streams along the Whau river through community participation and kaitiakitanga (guardianship and protection). We deliver a wide range of community-based environmental projects focusing on ecological restoration and conservation, principally in collaboration with Auckland Council and other key stakeholders within the catchment.
This project involves restoring a 1.5km long riverside walkway which is home to kahukura (NZ Red Admiral butterfly) and unusual native plants, like ongaonga (tree nettle) and kaihua (NZ Jasmine), rarely seen in urban Auckland. The organisation has been restoring the Kurt Brehmer Walkway for 10 years and extending the areas of beautiful native bush. But, there is a constant battle to hold back some nasty exotic weeds, like madeira vine, tradescantia and moth plant, which threaten this lovely area. Help control these and turn them into natural compost.
During the planting season (June to October) you will be involved in helping to plant native trees.
If you and/or your team would love to work outdoors, come and spend some time planting, mulching and weeding and help keep this walkway in great shape. It is very rewarding work.
Please note, if you are an individual, you can still register here. We will put you with a group that best suits your availability.
