Planting Days (Ruakaka River) - Teams or groups needed
Whitebait Connection has already planted thousands of plants in the area with the help of amazing volunteers, but we are committed to continually improving our local waterways.
We are going to protect valuable habitat for īnanga and īnanga spawning next to the river - our precious whitebait species is in need of your help to ensure there will be whitebait for the future!
