As part of a nationwide planting project beginning in Rugby World Cup year of 2011, including Rugby Living Legends, Whareroa has been lucky enough to have about 9'000 plants funded by Project Crimson / Rugby Living Legends

The attached e-book published at the end of 2015 (split into 3 parts only for Naturespace-specific technical reasons) celebrates the project and includes an entry for the 3 years or so of plantings funded by the Living Legends project at Whareroa. It also includes photos of Christian Cullen, Sir Colin Meads, Sir Brian Lochore and many more.

Whareroa: Analyses and studies

The first document posted here is a 2008 Masters thesis on the ecological and riparian health of the south branch of the Whareroa Stream.

The second document contains the accumulated notes to April 13, 2014 recorded on the WGCT Facebook page under "Flora &Flora of Whareroa Notes".
