Otari-Wilton's Bush volunteers.

Volunteers at Otari-Wilton's Bush

Volunteers provide valuable help with working bees at Otari-Wilton's Bush.

Volunteering is a great way to learn about plants and gardening, and is an important contribution to our community.

Volunteers help in many different ways. Their time and effort ranges from a few hours a month, to daily activity.


The Otari-Wilton's Bush Trust needs volunteers to support the staff on a roster basis during the weekends.

  • Hosts - provide visitors with general information about Otari-Wilton's Bush, events and public transport.
  • Guides - run one organised tour each month on the fourth Sunday as well as specialised tours.
