Led by the Waikereru Ecosanctuary Wild Lab Tiaki Taiao creative educators, Pete and Elle Jarrat, this is a creative outdoor education workshop, during which children will explore and celebrate rare and endangered species with a sense of wonder and fun.

Through ancestral knowledge, science, art and immersive experience, children begin to understand the challenges faced by indigenous plants and animals, and how to safeguard their future.

Workshop is suitable for ages 8 - 11.
Return bus transport from the iSite on Grey Street is included. Please be ready for a 9am departure, workshop will start at 9:30am.

Children need to wear and bring suitable outdoor footwear and clothing (including sun hat and rain jacket), and bring food and drink as they do on school days.

The 1769 Garden, designed by Philip Smith from O2 Landscapes, features plants that grew in the Tairāwhiti, and were familiar to local Māori at that time of Cook’s arrival and are typical of the thousands of specimens collected by naturalists Sir Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander.

The Garden is part of the Waikereru Ecosanctuary, a project initiated by Dame Anne and Jeremy Salmond.

About Tuia 250 ki Tūranga:
Tuia 250 ki Tūranga is about our people and our place - what brought us together, what challenges us still, and how we are weaving our differing cultures and values into a future we will be proud to leave for our grand-children.

Join us, in a year-long conversation as we contemplate what dual heritage actually looks like and have those conversations vital to forging a shared future. Conversations will be had, journeys will be taken, perspectives will broaden and experiences shared as we host the nation in October 2019.
