Every Tuesday and every second weekend you will see Conservation Volunteers out and about at different parks around Auckland. It’s part of an initiative between Conservation Volunteers New Zealand, Auckland Council and the Ministry for the Environment to help bring biodiversity back to our central parks and to give people who are interested in conservation a chance to get involved.

The programme runs every Tuesday and every second weekend and volunteers get to experience a variety of parks all around Auckland. The projects coming up range from potting up flax and laying out pest control stations at different sites around Mt Eden, planting to restore the health of the waterways around Auckland, installing wind protection around new seedlings and laying mulch at Waiatarua Reserve to planting native seedlings alongside Oakley Creek.

Conservation Volunteers NZ's experienced team leaders guide the programme and aim to teach volunteers about all aspects of conservation, including plant identification and planting techniques.

Team leader Wendy John says “each park has its own special characteristics, plants and wildlife and the conservation challenges for each area are very varied, so it’s a great chance for volunteers to learn about biodiversity and how we can all make a difference to our environment.”

Every Tuesday at 8am volunteers meet at Conservation Volunteers office in Mt Eden and are then transported to the week’s chosen park. Weekend times vary but usually take up the majority of the day. Gloves and all tools are provided. Volunteers just need to bring their lunch, a drink, a raincoat and sturdy footwear.

If you are interested in getting involved please call Clair at Conservation Volunteers New Zealand on 0800 56 76 86 or email info@conservationvolunteers.co.nz. Conservation Volunteers New Zealand runs a diverse range of conservation projects throughout New Zealand and you can check these out on their website.
