In light of the community outbreak of Omicron and the likelihood New Zealand will remain at the red traffic light setting for some time yet, the Beautification Trust has made the difficult decision to cancel the Eye on Nature Whānau Day at the Auckland Botanic Gardens on Saturday 26 March 2022. The safety of our communities, partners, volunteers and suppliers is at the heart of this decision.
We are exploring alternative ways to safely operate some activities at any traffic light setting by delivering engaging, educational experiences to the community, in place of the Whānau Day. This may be through smaller-scale workshops or pop-up activities in the Auckland Botanic Gardens over a series of weeks. All further details will be available through the Beautification Trust’s website and social media in due course.
Thank you to all our partners, volunteers, suppliers, sponsors and community members for your support as we adapt to these changing circumstances.
