Million Metres Planting Day – Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland

Help take care of New Zealand’s waterways! Million Metres is thrilled to invite you along to a planting day at Matuku Link co-hosted with our Foundation Partner, Alsco.

Grab your gumboots and enjoy a morning out in nature helping restore this beautiful wetland.

We’ll be getting stuck in planting, weeding and learning more about the amazing work that Matuku Link is doing to this restore native habitat that links untouched kauri forest, a river valley, wetlands and the sea. Your contribution will help make a real difference – thank you!

Planting will begin at 10am sharp and wrap up at 1pm. There will be a shared barbeque provided by Alsco from 1-2 pm.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
