Community Planting days

Community planting days are a great way for people to give back to their community and get involved in restoring their local creeks.

The Otara Waterways and Lake Trust has so far organised the following community planting events:

  • Otara Creek Reserve – 2000 plants 29 May 2016
  • Te Irirangi Reserve – 1700 plants, planted by Bairds Mainfrieght School, Dawson Rd Primary School and volunteers from The Pride Lion Brewery in June 2016
  • Preston Rd Reserve – 800 plants planted by students from Rongomai School (unfortunately half of the plants were stolen) in June 2016
