Community Action Wellington Meetup Group

This is a group based on the Meetup social networking website. We help out existing community groups in the greater wellington region with activities such as tree planting, beach cleaning and track cutting.

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.

Friends of Ernle Clark Reserve

A Christcurch City Council reserve on the true right bank of the Opawaho Heathcote River that is supported by neighbors and others interested in maintaining 1990 and 2000 schools plantings, expanding the extent and diversity of the indigenous plants, admire the oak and ash woodland and work to raise the profile of the wetland turf, the original 80 to 40year old native trees planted by former landowners.

 

CUE Haven

CUE Haven is a project to restore a 59 acre former dairy farm to create a sustainable forest ecosystem by restoring connectivity between the forest remnants and rehabilitating wetlands. Benefits include enhancing biodiversity and wildlife values, and providing headwater protection of the stream tributary that discharges into the Kaipara harbour.

Centennial Park Bush Society

Centennial Park Bush Society is an incorporated society in Campbells Bay, North Shore, NZ. Our focus is on Centennial Park, a 70 Ha reserve in the heart of Campbells Bay. We work weekly on this reserve to control pest plants, plant native trees, control pest animals and maintain tracks. We are also focussed on the entire catchment via a project named the Campbells Bay Urban Sanctuary

 

Moehau Environment Group

Moehau Environment Group is a volunteer organization which has achieved 11 years of coordinated intensive predator control, with habitat restoration projects covering over 13,000 hectares, primarily on private land.

This has allowed for the recovery of many endangered species in the Northern Coromandel including dramatic turnarounds for kiwi, fern birds, Bittern, Kaka and Spotless crake. Our hard work has allowed for the successful reintroduction of the North Island Robin and Pateke (Brown Teal), with both species now successfully breeding in the area.

South Wairarapa Biodiversity Group

The South Wairarapa Biodiversity Group was formed in October 2011. It is a rural community-led initiative and was the original brainchild of two Pirinoa Farmers.
The group's vision and goals are:
- To improve water quality and biodiversity through wetland restoration projects.
- To raise the level of awareness in the community of positive environmental management and its benefits.
- To improve farming practices through support and education.
- To promote restorative projects around Lake Onoke.

Talbot Forest Working Group

Talbot Forest Working Group was formed out of concern over the health of Talbot Forest Scenic Reserve
The objectives of TFWG are:
The provision of information that will contribute to the well being of the forest and environs.
The protection and enhancement of existing native vegetation remnants.
Working towards establishing appropriate linkages to Talbot Forest, to provide wildlife corridors.

 

Home Creek, Manapouri

Home Creek Restoration Project started about 15 years ago. It was pasture along one of the few meandering creeks that still exist in Southland. The first few years, we lost most of the plants because I misunderstood the environment, which is much harsher than I thought. But, I have now learned a lot, and every plant now lives.
