Coast Care Events

Coast Care Events 

Volunteers are invited to come and help at our upcoming Coast Care Bay of Plenty community planting days. Digging in the sand is quite easy and dune restoration can be enjoyable and rewarding. You'll be doing your bit for our native plants and animals and working with like-minded locals who care about the environment. All you need to bring is covered sturdy footwear, suitable clothing, gardening gloves and favourite spade. Look for the Coast Care flag.
