Greater Wellington residents are offered help to transform their back yards into havens for native wildlife during Conservation Week (August 6 – 12).

They’ll receive a free native plant for their garden in exchange for a weed at a weed swap at The NewDowse, 45 Laings Road, Lower Hutt, Saturday 11 August, from 10am to 3pm.

The event will be hosted by the Department of Conservation and Hutt City Council, with support from Greater Wellington Regional Council.
