In partnership with Auckland Unlimited, we’re proud to present the Summernova Waitematā Harbour Clean-Up! Join us in cleaning up the Waitematā Harbour at one of our three locations: Shoal Bay in Bayswater, Harbourview Beach Reserve in Te Atatu, or Point England Reserve.

On the day there will be sign-in stations set-up where volunteers will sign-in, pick-up gear, be. given a briefing and then head out to an assigned local beach. This multi-station approach ensures we can cover as many beaches as possible for maximum impact.
