Kauri Protection Workshop
Free Certification training is available to volunteers in Kaipātiki, focusing on upskilling volunteers and residents within Kaipātiki, and sharing how to look after kauri trees while conducting pest control or restoration work such as weeding, predator control or planting.
Our new Kauri Care programme is a fun, informative event for people who wish to know how to look after the precious kauri on their own properties.
Who should attend
If you have kauri on your property or are a volunteer who wants to safely continue your work in areas of Kauri within reserves.
We have combined the kauri care for homeowners and the kauri certification workshops.
Kauri Care workshop
This section of the workshop starts at 10:00, and runs for about 1 hour. This training is great if you have kauri on your property or if you are simply interested in how the disease works.
The workshop will also give you the ability to formulate your own plans for dealing with the spread of kauri dieback, and maintaining the health and safety of our precious kauri trees.
This section of the workshop runs from 11:00 pm to 1:00 pm.
This part of the workshop is focused on upskilling volunteers and residents within Kaipātiki, and sharing how to look after kauri trees while conducting pest control or restoration work such as weeding, predator control or planting. If you are a volunteer who wants to safely continue your work in areas with kauri, this is the workshop for you!
Sponsored by the Auckland Council Kauri Dieback team, this part of the training is aimed at reserve volunteers (or those who are thinking of volunteering in a reserve). The certification will allow you to enter the reserve in the case of kauri dieback closures.
If you only wish to come for the kauri care for homeowners workshop, you don't have to stay for the kauri dieback certification section. If you are interested in the certification workshop, we strongly advise you attend both workshops.
