Get Involved

Work Days – please come join us …

Over the past 18 years, keen volunteers have undertaken a series of working bees clearing “wilding” (self-seeding) trees, sweetbriar and broom from roadsides and public conservation land around Lake Ōhau.

Restoration planting of native seedlings has also been done, especially after the October 2020 wildfire destroyed native vegetation along the margins of the lakes. The plantings have been aimed at enhancing biodiversity and habitats along the lake margin, as well as restoring the natural environment that walkers and bikers visit and travel through.

Details about the work days are posted on the News page of this website – please check this page to see how you can be involved in conservation at Lake Ōhau.
