The Upper Waitemata Ecology Network

Tired of seeing unsightly rubbish littering our coastline, or floating on the water when you’re enjoying your favourite water sport?

Well now you can be part of the solution in the Upper Harbour by volunteering just a few hours of your time.

The Upper Waitemata Ecology Network,, is running a Coastal Clean-up on 23rd March, focussed around 4 key coastal points in the Upper Waitemata.

There will be land-based and water-based (kayaks only) volunteers required, leaving from  the designated areas at:  Greenhithe, Herald Island, Whenuapai and Beach Haven.  When registering, volunteers will be required to stipulate the beach or boat ramp they will be leaving from at one of these 4 locations.

The Clean-up will conclude with a sausage sizzle for all volunteers.

The project is funding by the Upper Harbour Local Board and also supported by:

Wai Connection

Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust

Friends of Shepherds Park

Auckland Sea Kayaks.
