Love your Coast – March 8th | The Bay at Matiatia | 8am – 2pm
As part of Seaweek 2014 Sustainable Coastlines is coordinating Love your Coast Waiheke Island, a large-scale education and beach clean-up project. From 3 to 7 March 2014 we’re working with schools, community groups and businesses, delivering our proven educational presentation and working hands on to clean-up this epic stretch of coast.
On Saturday 8 March the project culminates with a huge event day with clean-ups at locations all around the island. We would love you to be involved. We’re looking for volunteers to join the clean-up effort and for boats to ferry volunteers to hard-to-access beaches.

Your registration allows us to plan where to send volunteers and boats on the day. We have limited spaces available on boats so please don’t be disappointed if you miss out!
Details for Saturday 8 March
From 8am – 2pm, volunteers are asked to meet our team at any of our three Event Stations to register and pick-up rubbish sacks and gloves. Free lunch packs for the first 150 to turn up, so get in quick! Look for our big blue flags. Meeting points are:
– Ostend Market, Belgium Street, Ostend
– Matiatia Info Centre, Matiatia Wharf
– Kennedy Point Wharf, Donald Bruce Road, Kennedy Point
Following the clean-up all are invited to come together from 5pm at The Bay, 10 Ocean View Rd, Matiatia, to celebrate the day and week’s activities with food and entertainment. Epic spot-prizes will be up for grabs, including tickets to the Waiheke Jazz Festival where we’ll unveil an artwork made from the rubbish that you help us collect!
