Restore the Landing is a new community group based in Albany, by the Landing Reserve.

The group’s aspiration is to create a safe spot for native manu/birds, care and restore their habitat with native plants, restore the quality of the water, learn to sources native seeds and help nature and communities thrive in general.
Restore the Landing will start restoration activities all around the Landing area (Fernhill escarpment, Kell Park, the Landing,..) so they are looking for other people who want join them to make a difference for Papatūānuku!
Imagine a lush native bush and thriving native biodiversity (and, let’s be honest, thriving humans too) all around!
Restore the Landing has the support of our Ecology Network as well as Whitebait Connection- Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust.
Dan Marrow, our Auckland Parks community park ranger will support the group with his expertise and material needs also with the help of the Upper Harbour Local Board. If you too want to make a difference, meet other people from the community, be a part of something bigger, or just get active:

Do you often go for walks, or work/volunteer in parks and reserves?

Fill the EOI below!

We are looking for volunteers who can already identify some native plants and trees and like to go outdoors in Upper Harbour and surrounding areas and would be keen to help us collects seeds for our backyard nurseries. The seeds will be germinated in local native plant nurseries and once the plants are ready they will be planted in our local reserves and parks, increasing habitat and food for Aotearoa native species.

In exchange for your time and your help collecting ecosourced seeds, we will give you a training in ecosourcing (and all the related matters) in collaboration with Charmaine from Uru Whakaaro.

There is a limit of 20 spots available for this workshop so be quick feeling an Expression of Interest
