20 May Maungatautari
Maungatautari Ecological Island is an internationally significant restoration project. This 3,400 hectare forested, extinct volcano stands majestically on the landscape in the Waikato basin, between Cambridge, Te Awamutu and Putaruru, in the central North Island of New Zealand. Takahe, kiwi, kaka (birds) and kokopu (fish) have already been reintroduced to two pest free enclosures. Further reintroductions are planned as predator control is expanded.

 11 and 21 Mayweed removal on a Tirau farm
Dairy farmers on this beautiful Tiran farm are keen conservationists. We will be helping them restore wetlands and native seedlings survive for native birds and fish. The waterways on this farm feeds into Waihou Stream where 60% of our bottled water comes from. Your will get to learn about sustainable farming.

14 June – 2 July    Te Araroa Walkway .
This is the Waikato section of a the tramping trail from Cape Reinga in the north to Bluff in the south this National Walkway is due to be opened in late 2010. Come and help us build a track that would last for centuries to come.

20 June Yarndley’s Bush
At over 14 hectares, Yarndley's Bush is one of the largest remaining Kahikatea stands in the North Island. New Zealand's tallest native tree, the Kahikatea, once covered much of the Waikato region but swamp drainage and milling for timber mean very few large stands of the tree remain.
