Rangiwahia scenic reserve
ABOUT THE RESERVE.
THE STORY BEHIND THE TREE LABELS.
There are now 70 trees, including tree ferns and broadleaf varieties labeled along the track.
The Rangiwahia Community was awarded a grant by the Fonterra Grass Roots Fund to label native trees within this bush reserve, adding interest to the track .
The late Graham Pritchard, a botanist and member of the Botsoccer Society, agreed to help with this project and his knowledge and meticulous attention to detail, enabled an accurate record of the trees.
68 labels were made by Acorn Botanica Labels in Upper Hutt, and were finally put in place October 2014.
They look fantastic and will provide added interest for all, young & old, who walk the track. We are so grateful to The Fonterra Grass Roots Fund for providing the funding for this project.
A passionate group of locals have worked hard to restore the access to this gorgeous stand of native bush, as well as marking out the walk.
