Ronga Reserve is an ecologically important forest remnant in the Te Hoiere Pelorus catchment. Surrounded by valley streams with oxbow wetlands and springs, it is home to endangered long-tailed bats, towering totara and pygmy button daisy.

The Reserve is being restored by Forest & Bird, Nelson Tasman Weedbusters and Department of Conservation.

Battling floods, droughts and invasive weeds, the project has replanted 1000 trees every year, undertaken plant maintenance, and controlled weeds since 2014. Lessons have been learnt along the way!

The Open Day aims to give landowners and community groups tips and tricks for restoration planting.
Hear how the project:

- Phased planting into manageable bites
- Maintained plants to increase survival
- Managed restoration in a flood zone
- Used volunteer groups
- Controlled weeds
- Pest control

Free BBQ lunch provided. Bring solid shoes, insect repellent, sunscreen, and a chair/blanket to sit on.

Please RSVP and for further details to Wendy:
