What a day – the people bring the impact!
We had around 90 people turn up to plant 2,100 native trees at Te Atatu’s Harbourview-Orangihina Park. Good people, good conversation, good outcome. A picture says a thousand words so please scroll through the photos above to see how it all went down.
Bring on next year. Love your water!
As part of our 2017 Love Your Water project, we invite you to join us on Saturday 26 August for a day of tree planting on the shores of the upper Waitemata Harbour, at the entrance to the Whau River. Join Sustainable Coastlines and other local groups for a fun day of planting activity and riparian education.
Harbourview-Orangihina Park is a special slice of Auckland, containing some of the city’s last remaining stretches of wetland and being home to, amongst others, the endemic Fernbird ormātātā. This planting event will contribute to the ongoing restoration of the park, spearheaded over the last five years by Forest & Bird’s Motu Manawa Restoration Group and Friends of Harbourview.
Simply meet from 10.00am at the Gloria Avenue car park and look for our blue Sustainable Coastlines flags and friendly helpers in high-vis gear. We’ll be starting from 10.00am and finishing up around 1:00pm. You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but afterwards we’ll all come together for a tasty sausage sizzle and some Phoenix Organics Drinks.
