Sustainable Coastlines and ANZ invite you to join us on Thursday 20 June to help get their hands dirty and contribute to Wellington City Council’s restoration around Houghton Bay.
Planting native trees, shrubs and grasses on the banks of waterways helps the environment in a number of ways. Plants remove sediment and excess nutrients, they provide shelter, shade and habitat to birds and stream organisms and they help to capture carbon dioxide, which contributes to the ongoing battle against climate change.

Simply meet from 10.00am opposite 124 The Esplanade, near Houghton Bay, and look for the Sustainable Coastlines flags and friendly helpers in high-vis gear. We’ll be starting from 10am and finishing up around 3pm.To participate, please take a few seconds to sign up via our registration form below.
