Balmoral Reserve, Whangarei, Northland
LYW-2015-Northland

As part of our 2016 Love your Water campaign we invite you to join us for a day of tree planting at the Balmoral Reserve on Saturday 3 September 2016. This will be the final planting in a restoration project of over 3km of waterway from the Whangarei Falls to the Balmoral Reserve, run by the Whitebait Connection Team, with support from the Waitaua Catchment Restoration Network, Northland Regional Council, Whangarei District Council, Foundation North and the Department of Conservation!

Simply meet by the bridge on the corner of Vinegar Hill Rd and Balmoral Rd, Tikipunga. There is parking on Balmoral Road and the planting will be signposted from there. We’ll be starting from 10.00am and finishing up around 4:00pm. You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but afterwards we’ll all come together for some scones and Phoenix Organics’ Drinks.

Volunteers, corporate groups and schools are all welcome to come along and get your hands dirty, give some love to previous plantings, and help the regeneration of this beautiful stream. To volunteer simply sign-up through the quick form below.

We provide:

  • Trees and planting site
  • A planting tutorial
  • Gloves
  • Spades
  • Drinks: water and juice plus tea and coffee for adults
  • Access to toilets
  • Health & safety documents
  • First aid kits and first aid trained staff
  • Photographs

What to bring:

  • Sturdy, closed-toe shoes that you don’t mind getting a bit muddy. This is critical for Health & Safety considerations: those not wearing closed-toe shoes will not be able to participate.
  • Warm and waterproof clothes. At least one warm top layer and a rain jacket.
  • Sun hat and sunscreen
  • Reusable water bottle (filled up and ready to go)
  • Your old or unused mobile phone to recycle. As charity partner of the RE:MOBILE phone recycling scheme, donating your old mobile helps us raise critical funds for freshwater restoration.
  • Bring a camera (optional). We would love to see your event photos! Use the tag #loveyourwater on social media or email photos to oliver@sustainablecoastlines.org
