Trips for Kiwi Kids
In 2014 our Kiwi Conservation Club (KCC), the junior branch of Forest and Bird, arranged 12 exciting outings - trips to Goat Island Marine Reserve, a kiwi listening walk at Tawharanui, a guided bush walk at Wenderholm, a dotterel experience at Waiwera, and more.
So bring your kids and grandkids into the outdoors with us!
Watch this space for the 2015 programme!

There are many different activities you can choose to be a part of on a casual or regular basis. You might enjoy attending our regular working bees, participating in bird and reptile surveys, promoting our branch at market days, building trapping boxes, and/or helping with their distribution and monitoring.
