The Pourewa Restoration Group was set up by a small group of locals to restore an important area of bush in the heart of Auckland city.

We have a vision of the Pourewa valley being an oasis of native bush in the heart of an ever expanding Auckland City. A place where the community can walk through, be surrounded by native bush and feel a world away from the stresses of city living.

If this land is not cared for it will be replaced by the infiltrating surburbia which is gradually seeping into the few areas of 'free' land that still exist.

Please join us in the transformation and protection of an area that will be appreciated by generations to come. If you are interested in assisting us in controlling these weeds, planting native trees and encouraging birdlife back into this area we would be delighted to hear from you. We are there most Sundays from 9am until 11am.

Forest & Bird and Conservation Volunteers are both now highly involved in this project so you can also join up with them and join their planting and weeding days.
