Conservation Volunteers would love you to join us for our community planting days at Awaawaroa Wetland.

The Awaawaroa Stream and Wetland Reserve traverse the mid-eastern end of Waiheke Island in a roughly north-south line. The wetland and stream are home to a number of classified threatened species; including tuna, giant kokopu, inanga, banded rail and spotless crake. A partnership group of community members, Forest & Bird, Council Biodiversity and Local Park staff have identified the Awaawaroa Wetland as a priority location for restoration on Waiheke Island.

With the help of community planting days, the wetland will have a restored native plant riparian buffer which provides a suitable habitat for native fish and bird species. In addition, wetland sedimentation will be reduced, and the water quality of the reserve will be improved. We’d love for you to come along for one or more days and help make a difference! We’ll provide all the hungry planters with a sausage sizzle at the end of the event.

The Meeting point is on Awaawaroa Rd. Head out towards Poderi Crisci Vineyard on Awaawaroa Rd and follow the signs to the planting area.

We can offer limited transport from pick up points between Oneroa and the planting site. Please call for more info.
