Get involved

We’re always looking for people to join us in helping improve Te Wairoa River. Whether you’re wanting advice on making your property more river-friendly or have spare time you’d like to contribute, please get in touch.

Planting tips

We regularly provide tips on native planting on our Facebook page, as well as running a series of workshops on restorative planting and other topics local people are interested in. Our native plant nursery behind Clevedon Co-op, at 33 Clevedon-Papakura Road, is a great local resource. It's currently in a winter hibernation, while we undertake mahi needed to provide you and the local environment with a great service. We look forward to reopening to volunteer sessions soon.

Pest Control

Pest Control Co-ordinator Lenny van Heugton is keen to hear from you about your pest control issues and how she can help with advice, information or supplies. Email her at

School visits

We offer free educational sessions for local schools where students learn about the environment they live in and gain practical skills in planting.
