Join Richard Norman of the Rotary Club of Wellington and David Wilkins of Conservation Volunteers New Zealand for a guided tour of the 'Forest at The Heart of Wellington' – an urban conservation initiative to celebrate the centenary of the Rotary Club of Wellington in 2021.

The club started annual planting in 1967 with trees along Lambton Quay and has set a goal of getting to 100,000 for the centennial (‘only’ 60,000 to go!). By involving volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting of a further 60,000 native trees in the Mount Victoria Town Belt this project will create a valuable resource for the Wellington Community, and vastly improve the habitat for native birds as they radiate out of Zealandia and populate Wellington City.

During the walk, you’ll visit the areas of forest already planted by Rotary over the past 5 years and hear about Rotary’s vision for the transformation of Mount Victoria into a thriving native forest ecosystem.

Come along and learn about this exciting project, and how you can help turn this vision into a reality.

The walk will take you through the Mt Victoria Town Belt which is well tracked and on a medium gradient. Please wear sturdy walking shoes/boots and dress appropriately for the weather on the day.

If the event is cancelled due to weather please check WCC's Facebook page.

Please arrive at Victoria Bowling Club by 2:50pm

For more information contact: Aviva Stein – or phone 021 774 258.
