Native Forest and Peat Lake Restoration Project.

PLEASE BE AWARE DUE TO COVID-19. PLEASE do not attend if you have any 'flu' like symptoms. It is very important for us to track all participants for any future contact tracing purposes.

Held on the last Saturday of every month.

A partnership project with the University of Waikato, Waikato Institute of Technology (WINTEC), Tui 2000 Inc, Hamilton City Council, Hamilton Zoo, are working with community groups to reconstruct forest types of the Waikato ecological area and peat lakes.

The reconstruction has started on existing farmland in 2004. Conservation volunteers, community groups and Friends of Waiwhakareke (FOW) to date have planted over 350,000 native plants.

Come and help continue this great project for the future with the planting and maintenance of existing plantings. This is a 500 year project!

The group meets on a regular basis, at the entrance to Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park (opposite Hamilton Zoo), Brymer Road. Follow "Community Activity' signs at location.
