Why become a volunteer !

With less than 1% of vegetation remaining on the Canterbury Plains, we need you help to plant native greendots. Every year Te Ara Kākāriki plants natives at a number of sites.

Te Ara Kākāriki invites those with an interest in the environment or those that love getting outdoors or those that want to contribute. Get involved. Volunteer to become active agents of change. You can volunteer for one of both of the Canterbury Plantout days in spring.
