About Us

One of the largest and oldest branches in the country, the Dunedin Branch assists with local environmental issues, submissions and conservation projects.

We host guest speaker talks and organize field trips to sites of ecological interest. Anyone interested is welcome to join.

We run the local KCC branch which organizes nature activities and trips for children year round. Visit the KCC website for more information.

The Dunedin Branch owns and manages the Moore's Bush Reserve in Dunedin and the Lenz Reserve in the Catlins.

Get Involved

We are always eager for new volunteers and members. If you wish to get involved in conservation in Dunedin and beyond, contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator: Beatrice.Lee@actrix.co.nz.

We are currently looking for:

  • keen, committed volunteers to serve on our local committee, which is composed of 12 active members and meets monthly 
  • volunteer parents who can re-energise the local KCC membership and organize/lead local nature events for kids. If you are one of these fabulous parents, we want to hear from you: dunedin@kcc.org.nz.

Dunedin Issues

Local issues we become involved in are ones of environmental concern, often involving submissions to Dunedin City Council and Otago Regional Council annual plans. Projects we look after are typically related to the revegetation of particular reserves or the removal of invasive species.
