Wakaaranga Creek Tree Planting

Tree Planting Event

Fri, Jun 5, 2015
Fri, Jun 5, 2015
Wakaaranga Reserve, Half Moon Bay, Auckland

Thank you for those who took the time to come along to our event at Wakaaranga Creek, the first tree planting event in the Love your Water 2015 tour!

We had 275 volunteers, students, parents and staff plant 700 trees, infilling and new planting an area of more than 900 m2 of riparian area.

Thanks to our partners Benefitz and Singapore Airlines, to HSBC, Keen Footwear, Westpac, Eye Specialists and Phoenix Organics for making our Love Your Water program possible

A special thanks to Mark Read and Auckland City Council for working with us to facilitate such a great day.


To kick off our 2015 Love your Water campaign we invite you to join us for a day of tree planting and fun on World Environment Day, Friday 5 June 2015. After our huge event there last year, with Auckland Council’s support, we’re going back to the Wakaaranga Creek Reserve in Half Moon Bay, Auckland, to plant trees, clear weeds, spread mulch and show this creek some love!

Simply meet from 10.00am at the Prince Regent Drive Entrance to the Reserve. Look for our blue Sustainable Coastlines flags. We’ll be starting from 10.00am, putting on a lunch and drinks thanks to Phoenix Organics, and finishing up around 4.00pm. You can stay for as little or as long as you like.

Volunteers, corporate groups and schools are all welcome to come along, get your hands dirty and tidy up last year’s efforts as well as plant new native trees to add to the beautiful Wakaaranga Creek Reserve. Afterwards we’ll all come together and step back to admire our efforts. To volunteer, simply sign-up through the quick form below.

We’re looking for caring corporates to get behind the project. We need to raise funds to cover essential logistical, health & safety and administrative costs to ensure this project’s success in each region. Sponsorship is, therefore, vital. Check out the opportunities below to see how we can work together.

We offer sponsors:

  • License to Sustainable Coastlines logos for use on web, marketing and other promotional materials during the course of the event.
  • Love Your Water project report with metrics achieved through planting and educational work (great for CSR / sustainability reporting and marketing).
  • Access and permission to use all event images, footage and results.
  • Exposure through logo positioning on:
    • The official regional event page(s) on Sustainable Coastlines website.
    • Regional promotional collateral such as event posters.
    • Announcement and exposure of your organisation’s support to Sustainable Coastlines’ social media networks (combined audience of 12,500).
    • Opportunity to provide marketing material, run competitions and/or provide giveaways during the event. (Materials used in giveaways must be mutually agreed – with responsible packaging etc).
    • Further leveraging opportunities to be discussed.
