Dear volunteers. We have an exciting Spring season planned ahead for 2017. A couple of our planting dates are set, so put these dates in your schedule! Registrations are now open. Please return to the home page and scroll to the second post.

  • Saturday September 2nd – Upper catchment Canterbury Plantout
  • Saturday September 16th – Mid Selwyn Canterbury Plantout
  • Saturday September 30th – Port hills fire restoration and Tai Tapu Plantout. Back up dates in case of rain, are the following week for each date.

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.
