Sponsor a native tree to be planted within the Whau River catchment for only $10 per plant.
As a local Whau Not for Profit environmental organisation, we are reaching out to all Auckland businesses and individuals to make a donation towards sponsoring a native plant.
WRCT is launching our 'Sponsor a Native Plant'. For only $10 per plant, you can donate a native tree to be planted by our incredible volunteers within the Whau River Catchment area. On the average we plant some 20,000 plants a year.
For businesses who would like to become more involved and sponsor larger numbers of plants (a minimum of 100 plants), with every native tree comes an enviro-friendly plant label with your company name and logo. Lead the way by sponsoring either one or many native trees.
Planting more native trees means we are helping to combat the effects of climate change and supporting Auckland Council's Urban Ngahere (Forest) strategy. Native trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air creating cleaner air for future generations and more habitat for our native birds and other vitally important native species.
*Most of the plants are raised by Volunteers in our Community Native Plant Nursery.
Let's move forward towards a greener Whau, a greener Auckland, a greener Aotearoa.
Visit our website to find out more about our GREENING THE WHAU initiative https://www.whauriver.org.nz/projects.
The Whau River Catchment Trust and it's affiliated volunteer group, Friends of the Whau, has been operating for 23 years in total and have gained the respect and support of the community, Auckland Council and other environmental groups.
Sponsor a native tree for only $10 per plant. Each native tree sponsored comes with an enviro-friendly plant label with your company name and logo ready to be planted by a volunteer group.
