Makara Beach Clean-up with Meridian Energy

Saturday 2nd December 2017, Makara Beach, Wellington

SC Welly 2017 Tiles Makara WEBSITE 1060x707


Please join us from 9.30am to 2.00pm on Saturday 2 December 2017 for a fantastic day of adventure and exploration, all the while cleaning up the beautiful Makara Beach and the coastline on Meridian Energy’s West Wind farm. This wild piece of spectacular coastline, although well looked after by the locals, is affected by a regular flow of waste, so we are going to give it a good pre-summer clean-up. Meridian has been working with Sustainable Coastlines in communities to raise awareness and support coastal clean-ups around Wellington since 2012.

Important note: All participants need to register here!

Meet at the Sustainable Coastlines ‘Education Station’ container on Makara Beach at 9.30am, Saturday 2nd December to sign-in and collect equipment, for a 10.00am start. From there we will split into teams and head out along the coastline on foot and by 4WD vehicle to clean-up the area from Makara Beach and Meridian’s Ohau Bay.

Bring your own 4WD or jump in one that is provided to join the convoy. This will be a unique opportunity to explore the incredibly beautiful bays that are usually closed to vehicle access where unfortunately, tonnes of plastic rubbish washes up.

We will provide (for registered participants only):
