Conservation Week at Eskdale Reserve

Join our regular volunteer groups in Eskdale Reserve for a conservation week special!


Kaipātiki Project, along with our team of local volunteers, has been restoring and caring for this piece of native bush for many years. It is a unique and significant ecological area, host to a rich diversity of native plants and wildlife. Meet some of the friendly people working in this space, lend a hand to for conservation week and learn something new.

We will be getting our hands dirty by continuing our usual restoration mahi in the reserve, and we'll also make time for some conservation-related games and a micro-workshop to add some new twists to the days. Come on one or both days, it is up to you!



  • 9:30am - 12pm
  • Meeting point: Kaipātiki Project nursery, 58 - 60 Eskdale Road


  • 9:30am - 1pm
  • Meeting point: Corner of Domain Rd. and Glenfield Rd. (the entrance of the reserve with the cleaning station)


In addition to restoration, planting, pest control and weeding activities, we are working with kākahi/freshwater mussels, titiwai/glowworms and pekapeka/bats.

Bring along a mask, your gloves if you have some, water and closed-toe footwear. We will be following all appropriate Health & Safety measures to ensure everyone's safety.

Thank you for all your help and we look forward to seeing you.
