Arbor Day is about planting 18,000 native trees. Come along and help your community plant native plants at Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park. The park is a 500 year project to recreate a 60 hectare farmland back into native forest and wetlands. You will be helping to recreate biodiversity in the city. Learn 'how to plant a tree' and the importance of our native plants and wetland habitats.
We need groups and individuals to help plant and to show children attending the event how to plant.
You will need a planting spade, gumboots (it will be wet!), gardening clothes (long sleeves and long pants recommended), gardening gloves, a raincoat (just in case - we go rain or shine), lunch and a reuseable drink bottle (water).
9.30am-2.30pm, Friday, 2 June
