Otago Polytechnic

Winter is the planting season and OPAIC students and staff have joined Conservation Volunteers New Zealand to plant native trees to help restore parks and reserves back to native bush.

Fifteen students and one staff member volunteered at plantings at Atiu Creek Regional Park, Sanders Reserve, Point England Reserve and The Brookby Project, Papakura Stream during our last Study Block.

Some volunteered at multiple events and all together they planted more than 7,000 trees. We are proud of our students who have made time to care for Aotearoa’s environment, on top of their study and work commitments.

Any students keen to volunteer for future events should keep an eye on our Work Ready and Student Community Facebook groups for opportunities.
