Volunteer at Tuff Crater

The Tuff Crater Restoration Project on the North Shore commenced in 2000 with the planting of the Millennium Forest and has continued with major pest plant control, planting and predator control ever since. A major part of the work involves finding and removing threats from noxious alien invaders such as moth plant and wild ginger. It also includes releasing of new native plants so they do not get smothered by growth such as kikuyu grass or morning glory. Planting occurs in the winter months and the more energetic may get involved in path and drain maintenance.

No previous experience is required. If you do not know your plants, you will be guided by, and learn from, other team members.
