Join us at the beautiful Eskdale Reserve for a day in the bush, picking up litter along the stream and within the reserve to make it pristine again, as nature intended!
We have teamed up with musician and environmental advocate, Jack Johnson, this month as an All at Once Non-Profit Partner for his tour in New Zealand. In recognition of this, we'll be playing some laid back, but thought-provoking Jack Johnson music in the background while we work this week!
Location: Eskdale Reserve, Birkdale.
Meeting point near the corner of Domain Road and Glenfield Road, at the nearest entrance to the reserve with the cleaning station.
When: 03 December 2022
Time: 9:30am - 13pm
With a short tea break (provided) at 12pm
Bring: Garden gloves if you have some, water, any food you may like to have with you and closed-toe footwear. All tools provided.
Restoration at Eskdale Reserve is an ongoing project for Kaipātiki Project, where we host volunteers twice a week, year round, to remove pest plants, trap pest animals and (in season) plant native trees.
Join us and meet the wonderful group of local volunteers who have been caring for and restoring this natural wonder each week, and learn about the native ecosystems and regeneration process from our expert restoration activators who lead the groups.
In addition to restoration, planting, litter cleanup, pest control and weeding activities, we are working to monitor and restore kākahi/freshwater mussels, titiwai/glowworms and pekapeka/bats.
