The Ki Uta Ki Tai

From the Mountains to the Sea
Volunteer Week will be run in May for three nights. These are volunteer opportunities with coastal community groups of Karitāne and Waikouaiti working in conservation, habitat restoration and fisheries management.

Work with local projects of River-Estuary Care: Waikouaiti-Karitāne, East Otago Taiāpure, Hawksbury Lagoon Group, and Kāti Huirapa Rūnaka (a short distance north of Dunedin in Coastal Otago). There will be opportunities to help with planting and maintenance of native habitat restoration areas, participate in current research work, organise and develop educational materials etc.

Explore the lower Waikouaiti River Catchment area (hikes, waka ama paddling, traditional harakeke weaving workshop, stand up paddle board, kayak). Activities are offered free by the community in appreciation for help from volunteers.
