We will actively involve the community and provide the best opportunities for education, recreation, inspiration, and environmental sustainability.
The Shakespear Open Sanctuary Society Incorporated ("SOSSI") is an incorporated society established in 2004 for the purpose of assisting the Regional Council (now Auckland Council) with the establishment and development of a sanctuary at Shakespear Regional Park. We work under a memorandum of agreement with the Auckland Council and work closely with Council staff on both an operational and a planning level.
We post events on our website and our members can sign up, chat about the event and post photos afterwards.
The theme of the group is sociable volunteering. As well as volunteering, events usually also include having some food, drink and plenty of time for mingling with each other and members of the groups that we are meeting up with.
