  • Description:

    On Saturday March 25, 2017, Sustainable Coastlines and Kathmandu invite Kathmandu Summit Club members to the beautiful Motuihe Island for a day of outdoor coastal clean-up action! Motuihe, just like many of the islands in the Hauraki Gulf, catches the flow of Auckland's rubbish on the out-going tide. Plastic and micro-plastics can now be found washed up amongst the driftwood and sand.

    Summit Club members are invited to join us, free of charge, for a Summit Club Adventure on the Gulf to give some love back to Motuihe Island. 

    **This event is now fully booked**
