The Trust runs a flexible midweek volunteer programme.  Whether you are a corporate team looking for an excellent ‘volunteer day’ option or an individual wanting to make a difference, please contact email: volunteermotuihe@gmail.com

Activities are season dependent, with tree planting from autumn to early spring, with the rest of the year including; seed collecting, nursery tasks, weedwork, track clearing, and other relevant jobs.  Along with Trust Leaders we can tailor a day to fit with a wide variety of ages (5-80), fitness levels and experience.  The aim is to enjoy the beautiful island and contribute to its future.
