Weeding Teams

Motuihe Island / Te Motu-a-Ihenga

Great progress has been made since 2002 to eradicate the Island of its pest weeds, however it is hugely important that we continue in maintenance mode.  The Island weed effort has come a long way thanks to our enthusiastic volunteers and leaders.  Volunteers are always welcome to help with this task.  A reasonable standard of fitness is required. Contact 0800 668844 or email info@motuihe.org.nz if you wish to become Growsafe qualified or join the weed team.
