Free Speaker Event & AGM Saturday 26 June, 3pm at Pollok Hall

Come and listen to Dr Mels Barton from Kauri Rescue speaking about combating Kauri Dieback.
Why are Kauri so important to the northern NZ forest ecosystem? Why are they now a threatened species?  What can we do to support and improve kauri health?

We are excited to have such a well-respected scientist as Dr Barton as our guest.

This talk will be followed by refreshments and an update on the work of Landcare over the past year. Hear about the Te Korowai o Papatūānuku Revegetation project, the Predator Free pilot and the community Pest Control network.

Āwhitu Landcare’s Annual General Meeting will be held after the speaker event.

Recruiting now for Volunteers

Is the environment important to you?

Would you like to contribute to your community?

Āwhitu Landcare is powered largely by volunteers. Could you be one of them?

We are looking for people who have an interest in conservation and who can donate a few hours a month. If you have a background in accounting, IT, fundraising, website development, communications, revegetation, pest control or Committee administration, then we’ve definitely got some volunteer opportunities for you!

You might like to join the Landcare committee, or to contribute your skills on a project x project basis.
