Forest Restoration - Mangaonua Gully

Hamilton

Our aims are to increase biodiversity of local plants, birds and animals and to create a pleasant environment for people to visit.
The main work is using secateurs to remove and cut up vines such as honeysuckle and convolvulus that are overwhelming the native plants. We learn how to identify weeds and native plants and enjoy seeing the native plants and trees making new growth. We plant about 400 native species during the winter months.

All people are very welcome to help us as we have a range of environments that we work in. Our ideal person is someone who enjoys nature and who likes working with others to learn new skills.
