The Hastings-Havelock North branch has 250 members and encompasses the areas of Hastings, Havelock North and stretches out west. 

We meet once a month for branch meetings and join with the Napier Branch for a monthly field trip on a Sunday. The area is home to one of New Zealand’s biggest gannet colonies out at Cape Kidnappers.

Get involved

The branch is always looking for new members and volunteers so if you would like to get involved please get in touch.

There are opportunities for volunteers at the Pukahu ProjectBlowhard Bush, Poukawa Stream and at our great branch Native Plant Nursery.

We would be very happy to hear from you. Email us here to find out more.
