Coastal birds like tūturiwhatu (New Zealand dotterel) are facing shrinking habitats between rising sea levels and human developments on land.

The Horowhenua Branch encompasses the area between Foxton and Otaki.We currently have around 150 members.To find out more about the Horowhenua branch please contact our secretary Geoff Ritchie. See contact details below.

Get involved

We often have a guest speaker on a conservation-related topic, and we discuss our branches current activities and any issues in our area. We also hold a mid-winter soup evening, and during summer we have a potluck picnic.

Branch Meetings

We hold monthly branch meetings, which are open to the public. These are held on the third Monday of the month at 7.00 p.m. at the Thompson House, Kent St  Levin.

Each month we arrange a walk or outing to a local area of natural interest. These are open to anyone who would like to attend. Branch outings leave from Thompson House in Kent Street, Levin, and pick-ups are in Foxton, Shannon and Otaki. For more information on branch outings, see our 6-monthly programme.

Nature needs your support

Supporting Forest & Bird is one of the best things you can do for New Zealand's environment. We need people like you to support us, so that nature will always have a voice.
