Native Plant Nursery - Conservation Volunteer

Environment & Conservation Short Term Wellington

About this opportunity

If you enjoy getting your hands dirty then join us for a day at our plant nursery where we are growing thousands of native seedlings destined for our Forest. This project involves volunteers from schools: communities and corporations in the planting of 65000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt bringing the total number of trees planted by Wellington Rotary to one hundred thousand. This project will create a substantial new habitat for native birds which are increasingly venturing beyond the protective fence of Zealandia. Activities include re-potting seedlings: some identification and labelling of plants and weeding. You can either meet the team on site or arrange a free pick up from the city centre.
