Corporate volunteering opportunities

Show corporate social responsibility by volunteering with Kaipātiki Project. Join our volunteering whānau to get up close with nature. From weeding and trapping to growing and planting, many hands make light work.

Getting your staff away from the daily grind with a day at Kaipātiki Project can really lift their spirits – helping them to make a difference in a very real way. It feels great to learn with others and help our natural world.
