About The Event

The Whau River Catchment Trust 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.

Save Baby Trees from Noxious Weeds. Weeding is just as important as planting. This project involves saving recently planted baby native trees from some nasty exotic weeds. The weeds can overwhelm and kill the young tree seedlings. This intervention in the first couple of years of their life ensures that the trees can grow up big and strong, and will eventually outgrow the weeds and be able to look after themselves. These are future forests providing habitat and food for many other native species of birds, insects and lizards.

If your team would love to work outdoors, come and spend some time releasing baby trees from weeds. It is very rewarding work.

Please register here if you are an individual or a group and we will be in touch soon to sort out a time.

By participating in this volunteering opportunity you are helping achieve the following United Nations Sustainability Goals: Goal 11 - Sustainable cities and communities Goal 13 - Climate action Goal 15 - Life on land
