There are many volunteer groups in Wellington that focus on environmental projects and organise working bees in Council parks and reserves.

Volunteer activities include:

  • planting and restoration
  • pest animal control
  • weed control
  • track building
  • rubbish collection 
  • public education
  • fundraising to enhance reserves.

This voluntary action makes a huge contribution to biodiversity management.
