Location: Duder Regional Park (between Maraetai & Clevedon 45 mins from Auckland)
Team size: 5 - 20
Greater Auckland is home to 35 regional parks, open for all the community to enjoy - making the most of the great outdoors and the natural flora and fauna of Aotearoa. Duder Regional Park is located on the pohutukawa-fringed Whakakaiwhara Peninsula, which cuts out into the Tamaki Strait. Visitors may feel like they are on their own island as they enjoy the 360 degree views extending to the Brookby/Maraetai hills, the Hunua Ranges and Hauraki Gulf islands.
In order to restore this area to its natural beauty, there are plenty of tasks required to maintain and develop the park. This includes placing mesh around posts to create protective areas for pohutakawa trees to grow and provide shade for livestock. Tasks also include planting, weeding, mulching, picking litter and general maintenance as required depending on the season and the park ranger's needs at any time.
The park also has an ambitious new tree planting project in mind - to plant several thousand trees on a bare section of parkland. So if your company wanted to 'adopt a tree planting' project and send out several teams over a period of time, this would have a huge impact.
So come and enjoy a day working outdoors on the rugged south-east coast in order to restore this park to its natural beauty.
