Volunteer to help

A number of volunteers are involved in environmental projects within the parks and forests. 'Care groups' currently running major restoration projects include;

These groups run numerous restoration days that are open to the public and are always very happy to work with and educate interested people. To find more information about these days, visit our events calendar or to see the full list of Greater Wellington volunteer groups vist the Care group page.

We need help with lots of different activities

Individual volunteers also assist with activities such as:

  • flowering and fruiting recording
  • bird monitoring
  • rodent / mustelid monitoring
  • restoration planting
  • potting plants in the nursery
  • track building / maintenance
  • educational walks / talks

If you would like to be involved either as part of a care-group or as an individual, please contact:

Corporate volunteering

Take a break from your desk, do some team-building and help out the environment at the same time.

Corporate restoration days in the regional parks are a great opportunity to spend time outside your workplace and get to know the other people in your team or wider business. Plus you'll be able to come back later and enjoy the "fruits" of your labours. Or at least watch the birds doing so.

Activities include planting,  "releasing" plants from competition (a great stress-buster!) and potting up seedlings, ideal for the less energetic.
