Share in Nature’s Revival in Auckland

Help us grow a sustainable future for people and nature. We aim to make it easy and fun to connect with the community, learn and share skills, and make a positive difference to our beautiful region.

Join our environmental volunteering whānau to get up close with nature and work alongside our team and other local volunteers. You can volunteer once or on a regular basis – everyone is welcome to join our volunteering whānau, even if it is just to enjoy morning tea.

Every year, we eco-source, propagate and pot up a massive 30,000+ native plants. Our volunteers use these plants in restoration activities all over Auckland’s North, helping to rescue the bush from invasive plants and restore homes for our native animals and plants.

Working together, we restore our native plants, birds, bugs and fish in our urban environment. Give back to your community and feel the wonder of making a difference.

When coming along please wear closed shoes, bring sunblock, sun hat, water and raincoat if it rains.

Social Protocols

  1. Respect the environment - You will be out in nature for this experience so please help protect our environment by taking all your rubbish with you.
  2. Be a great listener - Have fun and stay safe by following instructions carefully.
  3. Be considerate of others - You’ll be part of a group, so it’s important to be kind and courteous.

Cultural Protocols

  1. A chance to relax - This experience is one way Kiwis like to relax and enjoy life so it will seem very relaxed. Have fun, enjoy slowing down (away from work or study) and relax!
  2. Be a respectful visitor - You will be a guest during this experience, so please be respectful. Two important Māori customs are to take your shoes off indoors and avoid sitting on tables or pillows.
  3. Be on time - While the experience will be a relaxed one, make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to arrive early so you don't keep your guides and others waiting.
  4. Hello and goodbye in Māori - If you want to start practising some basic Māori phrases, you could try using ‘Kia ora’ (hello) and ‘Ka kite’ (goodbye).
