Friends of Maara Roa (Inc)

We are a group of people determined to make a change in our world.  We are going to restore the Cannons Creek Valley back to health and beauty, and to develop it for the purposes of rest and recreation.

This is a 20-year project, half-way through.  There's a lot done.  There's a lot planned.

What we are doing:

  • Growing native seedlings
  • Planting & looking after the new native trees
  • Protecting existing bush
  • Protecting freshwater wetland
  • Controlling pest animals & weeds
  • Reinstating the big native trees
  • Following bio-diversity principles
  • Opening new walking tracks
  • Planning for the future reserve

The Friends of Maara Roa volunteers work in friendly cooperation with the relevant Local Authorities.
