Native Tree Planting in the Clutha River / Mata Au Catchment - TRANSPORT AVAILABLE FROM DUNEDIN


Dunedin City Council




Working Hours



DOC, together with Contact Energy and rural landowners, are improving freshwater habitat within the lower Clutha catchment. Our focus is on ensuring tuna/longfin eel, kanakana/lamprey, inanga/whitebait and giant kōkopu continue to have healthy, productive waterways to call home.

We are planting specific areas in the catchment with native species such as harakeke/flax, purei/Carex sedge, tī kōuka/cabbage tree and toetoe, to enhance habitat and give better shade, shelter and food sources so populations of these special native fish can grow and thrive. The plantings will also help stabilise edges, manage sediment, beautify areas and provide vegetation for insects and bird life.

This is a great opportunity to visit beautiful locations for some hands-on involvement in important local conservation projects.
All welcome, no experience required, hot drinks will be provided.

TRANSPORT IS AVAILABLE from John Wickliffe House, Princes Street, Dunedin.
