About Us

Taupo Branch has over 160 members and covers an area that encompasses Turangi to the south, Atiamuri to the east and as far north as the King country.

The branch hosts an activity each month from talks by expert speakers to local outings.  This winter the branch is taking part in Project Tongariro.

Local Issues

The Taupo Branch has been instrumental in establishing the ohaaki wetland, and has actively opposed the sale of iwi land for forestry purposes. Currently the branch is establishing a marine campaign to stop trawling and deep sea mining in the area. 

Get involved

Feel free to get in touch and come along to a meeting or an outing. We try to have outings as often as possible. 


Branch Activities

The branch is in talks with Project Tongariro about getting involved with the replanting of land through its 'adopt a hectare' program. It is also active in setting and maintaining traps in the Waipahihi Botanical Reserve.
