About this event

Connect, Give and Be Active - are simple actions to take care of your mental health and wellbeing!

Business School Health, Safety and Wellbeing Committee is excited to announce the Tree Planting Day at Atiu Creek Regional Park!

Please join us (UoA Business School staff) in the volunteering activity hosted by Conservation Volunteers New Zealand (CVNZ) for a day of planting at Atiu Creek Regional Park. The event will take place at the end of the planting season, so this is your last chance to participate in planting activities with CVNZ in 2022. We will get together to restore the area back to the native bush, give back to the community and connect with people at the University of Auckland!

About park

This beautiful and little visited park has extensive harbour frontage with large tracts of native forest supporting a range of flora and fauna which provides habitat for the nationally threatened New Zealand dabchick and brown teal. This is a stunning coastal area that is now under intensive regeneration. We would love for you to come out and escape from the city for the day to help restore this beautiful site by planting hundreds of native trees and shrubs along the gully to filter contaminants before they reach the waterway and provide important shade and habitat for native fauna.
