The group meets on a regular basis to undertake various environmental conservation activities within the park to recreate a 'Kahikatea forest' e.g. planting native plants, releasing planted plants, mulching. Meet at the 'Deer Stalkers' Hall Car park at 10am, 138 Wairere Drive.

They are working with the local community i.e. Kirikiriroa Marae, Knighton school, ATC training Corps to plant and establish a mixed podocarp forest (kahikatea, matai, rimu, totara etc.) as part of the ‘bush corridor’ linking the city to the river.

There is also an establishing grove of harakeke/flax from the ‘Rene Orchiston’ collection available for those teaching Maori traditional harakeke weaving. Come along and help with this project and have a sense of contributing positively to the urban restoration in Hamilton City.

Please be aware to follow COVID-19 protocols.

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.
