Volunteering Opportunities

 Our branch boundaries extend from Porirua to Otaki River, and there are heaps of groups and individuals doing wonderful things to help nature in this area, so there are many opportunities to volunteer.
We put the spotlight on one project in each newsletter so check your latest issue to find out more.
Forest and Bird has been involved in setting up some of these projects, but there are many others we have learned about later.

Why and how to volunteer? Have a read of this article by our chair on the benefits of volunteering.
If you're keen, have a look at the list and follow the link in the title to find out more about the project. It usually works best to find a project close to home, or one that ticks the boxes to give you the most satisfaction. (Note: If your group isn't listed, contact us so we can correct that).
