The North Taranaki Branch has approximately 220 members and keeps itself busy with numerous activities and meetings throughout the year.

During the year, we run a number of talks featuring guest speakers and activities, such as planting days & working bees.  Members and supporters meet on a monthly basis. 

Special Reserves

North Taranaki owns and maintains two reserves in the area: Te Wairoa and Tom & Don’s Bush.

Te Wairoa is a 5 hectare, publicly accessible area of bush surrounded by farmland. It is home to a wide range of native birdlife. Trapping is done by volunteers on a regular basis. The effects of in-fill planting and weeding are showing with re-vegetation beginning to show.

Tom & Don’s Bush was donated to the branch and is protected by a QEII covenant. It is not accessible to the public. Weeding has allowed much of the native bush to regenerate leading to many native species returning to the area.

Branch Activities

The branch holds monthly working bees in the Te Wairoa reserve to clear the area of invasive weeds.The branch also has a full calendar of exciting events and outings planned. Anyone is welcome to join and come along. Many activities such as the planting days are open to the public so get in touch to find out more.  

Get involved

We welcome anybody who wishes to get involved and has an interest in preserving our natural heritage.

If you would like to join the branch; help with any of our projects or volunteer some time please feel free to contact us.
