Over Summer, a few months ago in March we were very excited to have our first chance to tramp around the this gorgeous little island! So continuing our Club's annual give back to the environment of Motuihe Island over the Winter months, we're back again for 2019.
It's very well organised, so there is choice of planting, or working in the nursery and then after the yummy bbq sausages and tea and coffee that the organisers provide at lunchtime, we usually head off to one of the tracks to spot many native birds and if really lucky sunbathing Tuatara's before heading back down to catch the ferry home!
Please contact the organiser to register your attendance and if departing Auckland City or Devonport, so we can notify Fullers of our numbers. (Unless you wish to book your planters ferry seat individually by phoning Fullers on 093679111. You can pay for the ticket then or get a booking number and pay for it at the ticket office on pier one on Sunday morning).
Volunteers need a discount card, available from a Motuihe representative standing near Pier 1 Ticket office from 8.45am on the day or via NSTC organiser at Devonport at 8.45am.
(Cancellations: Subject to weather - please ring 08006688443 after 7 am on the day to check for cancellations. Important over winter months, if the weather is really inclement. We've often still gone to the island on a wild day and had an amazing time). Bring your camera/phone as the sea views all around you on this little island are gorgeous! (Suggest pre-booking so you don't miss out! Very importantly, read the above link for Island Bio-Security to protect this treasure island).
