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.
CUE Haven is a community native reserve created by the community. Since 2008 over 4500 volunteers have planted over 167,000 native trees and built over 4 km of walking tracks.
The property is owned and operated by the CUE Haven Community Trust and will become a community space for environmental education and exploration when infill planting and infrastructure development are completed.
North Shore branch is one of 49 branches of Forest & Bird in NZ. Apart from branch meetings and advocacy, our main project is the Tuff Crater Restoration Project.
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.

- 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.
