Whangarei volunteer Wednesday
Volunteers planting by the coast
Every third Wednesday of the month, you can join a DOC ranger for a day.
Help to preserve our beautiful natural environment and carry out conservation work. The work varies each month and is held at a different location. Past examples include
- site maintenance at Ruapekapeka Pā,
- weeding at Ocean Beach,
- painting at Otamure campground,
- planting at Paradise Shores,
- fencing at the Whangarei Kiwi Sanctuary, where volunteers were lucky enough to meet a kiwi that required a transmitter change.
There is an educational component each month, which may include a talk from our knowledgeable rangers or a member of the local community group, or an opportunity to meet a kiwi or to go on a guided walk.
