Community Conservation - Tawa Bush

Volunteer Wellington
Logo for Volunteer Wellington

On this day we will be maintaining sites that have been recently planted. Tawa Bush was once filled with noble trees of gigantic growth, clothed not only with their own evergreen foliage, but with innumerable ferns, mosses and orchidae, climbing up to their trunks. Beneath the upper canopy of forest trees - such as the rimu pine, the kaikatea, the totara, kahikatoa, rata and many others of enormous growth, there was an undergrowth of nikau palm (areca sapida) and the beautiful tree fern. Friends of Tawa Bush is a local community group working hard to restore the bush through repairing boundary fencing, signage, track development and maintenance, pest plant control, possum control and tree planting. What to wear/bring: Sturdy boots, long sleeves, and long trousers are essential. Ensure you pack warm clothes such as a beanie, jumper and a rain jacket to protect you against wind and rain. Bring a full water bottle and food! What we provide: Gloves, tools, high-vis. Free transport available from Wellington City - get in touch to book a seat as spaces are limited!
