Friends of A’Deane’s Bush
Friends of A’Deane’s Bush want to see this area as a wildlife sanctuary where plants and animals flourish, and locals and visitors are encouraged to learn about and engage in ecological restoration.
This 40 ha lowland forest features rimu, matai, kahikatea and totara – and exhibits great diversity of native plants and animals. The 1km track passes one of NZ’s largest standing totara.
The Friends have a Memorandum of Understanding with DOC to work together to achieve this vision, and have so far been working on pest plant and animal control, planting and setting up monitoring of species responses to the work.
The Friends are currently made up of neighbours, the school, and locals and are guided by The Conservation Company.
