Restoration Day 2022 focuses on Wairarapa Moana. A place of immense cultural and ecological value impacted by changes in the last 200 years. What will it take to turn this around?

Programme highlights include:

  • Rawiri Smith’s keynote speech asking: “How do we lift Wairarapa Moana from the too hard basket and restore its value?”
  • A lightning round session exploring how to restore environmental values
  • Field trips to Wairarapa Moana, Waipoua River, Tauweru Farm and an Aorangi Catchment Seminar

Restoration day will be made up of an online webinar and a series of in-person field trips. Please see the programme (PDF 249 KB) for further details and date.

Field trips

Spaces for field trips are limited to one per person. A moderate level of fitness required.


Saturday 28 May 9.30am - 12.30pm. Open to all, you can join the webinar here.
