The Trust relies on volunteers to help with a wide range of projects, events and activities in the Park. We would love to build on our active supporter base and there are many ways people can get involved.
The Friends of Te Mata Park focus on weed control, planting and regeneration projects.
One-off large-scale ‘all in’ efforts like Clean The Peak occur every few years. For example, in November 2010 a massive clean-up involved abseilers, helicopters, dump trucks and hundreds of volunteers, along with the support of many local businesses and organisations. Much of the rubbish had been thrown off the Peak from the summit and included in the haul was a trailer, 20 wheelie bins, washing machines, microwaves, shopping trolleys, road cones, 44 gallon drums, computers, bikes, a headstone, road signs, over 1,000 road and car tyres, and last, but not least, a ‘Do Not Litter’ sign!
