DISCOVERY DAY – Sustainable Backyards aligned volunteer day. Take a walk along the short loop with experienced volunteer Mary Hodge who will include a ‘walk-the-line’ experience along one of our many pest management lines to show what we do to manage pests and protect our forest. Anyone welcome, including children with a responsible adult. Contact [email protected] to register. Maximum 15 people.
We run “Volunteer Wednesday” on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. The day is either ‘work’ focused – helping with ongoing pest management operations and maintenance OR ‘discovery’ focused.
Arrive at the kohanga ready to go at 9am, and enjoy a morning cuppa and a chat before you head home at 12.
Work days – join us for a work morning with Aongatete Forest Project. There are plenty of tasks on offer. Bring clothing and footwear suitable for walking both on and off track, gloves and pair of secateurs.
Discovery days – join us for a discovery morning with Aongatete Forest Project. The morning will reward you with discovering aspects of the AFP you mayn’t have seen or been to before. Each ‘Discovery Day’ has a different theme and these will be confirmed the month before the event. Bring clothing and footwear suitable for walking both on and off track, water and personal medication etc. The allocated day for our discovery events may change depending on the event and the weather.
We hope you can come to both. Subject to weather with notification updates on our website.
