As part of our Love Your Coast Tamaki Makaurau project and in celebration of Seaweek, we’d love you to join us on Saturday 3 March 2018 for a clean-up of the beautiful coasts of our Hauraki Gulf. With three registration stations on the mainland, there are plenty of opportunities for all to get involved.

From 12pm to 3pm on Saturday 3 March, meet at our three mainland clean-up stations to register, receive important health & safety info and collect reusable rubbish sacks and gloves.We’ll give advice on the best clean-up spots around each station, or you can head out to your favourite location. After you’re done, return to the station with your coastal trash so we can dispose of it properly and reward your efforts with some delicious refreshments.
