  • Sun hat and sun cream.
  • Reusable water bottle (filled-up and ready to go).
  • Snacks.

As the culmination of the Puketāpapa Healthy Harbours and Sustainable Living programme, run conjointly between Urban EcoLiving Charitable Trust (Tread Lightly Caravan), Sustainable Coastlines, NZAEE SeaweekManukau Harbour Restoration Society and Puketāpapa Local Board, we invite you to a public clean-up day on the shores of the Manukau Harbour.

Join us from 10:00am to midday on Sunday 26th November at the bottom of Waikowhai Park for some Love Your Coast action and make yourself proud to be a part of the local community. Bring your family, bring your friends, bring the goodness.

Simply turn up, sign-in and we’ll send you out to take ownership of a stretch of coast. Return to base with your haul of treasure and tuck into the BBQ! Members of the other trusts involved in the program will also be there to inform you about all the good work they’ve been doing as well.
