Community Planting Days

Each spring and autumn we invite our community to help plant natives at our keystone sites. To date, we have planted over 55,000 natives throughout the Wakatipu Basin.  We thank all of our volunteers who recently supported our Autumn planting campaign – all of our sites are looking great!

Our next community planting days commence in Spring 2021.  Everyone is welcome and no experience is required.
