January 2018 | Central North Island: Showcasing, celebrating and acknowledging all things conservation, Mahi Aroha brings together the Central Plateau’s stunning natural and historical treasures in an exciting summer programme.

This is a past event.

Mahi Aroha is a joint initiative between the Department of Conservation and Project Tongariro. It offers exclusive opportunities to explore our local flora and fauna, cultural and historical sites, and landscapes.

Learn about the conservation efforts currently underway in our area and what you can do to help. Meet the people working tirelessly to ensure our very own piece of paradise remains intact for future generations. Be inspired to lend a hand.

Bring the kids, grab a friend and explore your backyard like never before. This is our place, let's protect it, nourish it and hold onto it.
