MOWS & Coastcare Working Bee

July 7 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am NZST

Group of people planting on the beach
Come and join us for another awesome Coast Care planting event with our pals @MaketuOngatoroWetlandSociety
Led by local Coast Care restoration coordinator Chris, this is part of a regular programme of planting events to help restore our precious sand dunes – the backbone of our beaches and the first line of defence against coastal storm surge! Dune planting is easy and good fun with like-minded people, so bring your friends and family along (if you’re bringing littles ones, please ensure you’re ready and able to help them).
Our events only last 2 hours and are both practical and educational.
Where? Maketu Spit
What time? 0930
What do I need?
– Gardening gloves (we will have these on-hand but some prefer to use their own)
– Sturdy, covered walking shoes/boots (no jandals or bare feet please)
– Raincoat (just in case).
This is a family friendly event, however, a moderate level of fitness is important as some of the planting is quite a walk down Maketu Spit.

Please keep an eye on the weather forecasts. If Met Service issues a red weather warning, this event will be cancelled. Please contact [email protected] for further information.
See you there!
