Come and help plant native plants around the Wakatipu Basin at a community planting day!

Bring: Gloves, shovel, water, good footwear and friends, family, and enthusiasm!

All the details and updates are on our Wakatipu Reforestation Trust Facebook page.

Since humans first set foot on New Zealand, our native forests have suffered a 70% reduction in size while our native bird species have been reduced by 30%. The Wakatipu Reforestation Trust encourages you to go native! We work with the community to grow and plant out native plants, including threatened species, throughout the district. This will create wildlife corridors that will, in turn, attract native birds and insects back into the basin, significantly enhancing the biodiversity of our area.

The dryland woodlands that used to be prolific in the Wakatipu Basin are one of the most threatened ecosystems in New Zealand, and also one of the least protected.

With your help we can:
- Prepare, plant and maintain sites throughout the basin
- Bring back the birds and other native creatures
- This will provide a native seed source for the natural spread of native plants
- Reduce areas of weeds that need to be sprayed
- Improve our visual landscape
