Join the Conservation Volunteers NZ, Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne, and Friends of Taupō Swamp to get your hands dirty removing weeds in this unique habitat. Everyone welcome! Sessions start at 10am and 12pm, after a briefing you are welcome to stay any length of time (up to 2pm).
Taupō Swamp is in Plimmerton, north of Wellington. It's home to 19 species of bird, a diverse range of plants, native fish such as the longfin eel and kokopu - a treasure for native wildlife right on our doorstep.
Please register if you would like to join us and bring your whānau along.
