Here is your chance to become part of Wellington's oldest reforestation project. The Manawa Karioi Ecological Restoration Project is on land that is part of Tapu Te Ranga Marae.

Kaumatua Bruce Stewart had a large plot of land that was primarily gorse, blackberry and grass, the vision was for a 'bird and bush reserve'.

Manawa Karioi Society Incorporated was formed in 1990 to manage the project and the first seedlings were planted in 1991.

Now, 25 years later, much of the site is covered in native bush with the abundance and diversity of native plants and animals continuing to increase.

We have pledged to plant 1000 trees in 2017 at Manawa Karioi Ecological Restoration Project in the hills of Island Bay.

We will be meeting at the information board at the Tapu te Ranga Marae Carpark and we will be there regardless of weather, so bring warm clothes, a jacket and good shoes or gumboots. All tools, trees and gloves are supplied. If you can't find us, text or call us on 022 127 7361.
